Rainy Day Activities

We are getting a lot of rain here in my area and I thought about how cooped up some students may feel. I know my husband is getting cabin fever too. So, I thought of some activities to do on a rainy day.

Homemade play dough – make several batches of this in different colors. Let students create things with this

Get some leaves and make leaf prints Identify the trees or plants they come from.


Hangman – Take turns guessing the word.

Word Creation – Come up with a long word with a lot of letters. Have students create words using the letters in the original word. Each letter can only be used as many times as it is given in the original word.

Storybooks – have students get in groups and have them write their own story books. Give a topic or theme to help them get started. Fold paper in to fourths and as they write their story on each page and draw pictures, have them number each page in order. Then when they cut the pages out, they can put the story in order. Make a cover for the book and staple the book together.

Create a game – Give students supplies and have them get in small groups. Have them creat a game on a specific topic (addition, multiplication, short vowel words, etc.)

Informational posters – Have students think about something they like to do or are interested in. Have them design a poster that they can share with the class.

What other activities do you do in class when it is too rainy to go outside? Please share.
