Free Printable Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Activities

"Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" is a wonderfully whimsical childrens' story from the husband and wife duo of Judi and Ron Barrett, 1982. I used the book many times teaching special needs, homeschool and general education. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is a modern tall tale, set in ChewandSwallow, where the weather brings all the food that residents need. Instead of rain and snow, pie, hotdogs, spaghetti and fried eggs rain down. It's a great thing, until the weather turns stormy. The school is covered with a giant pancake, homes are ruined by oversized pickles and businesses closed due to snowdrifts of cream cheese and jelly sandwiches.

Happily, cartoonists and filmmakers have elected to create a feature length cartoon based on "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs." The story has been added and developed to fill a movie. I'm pleased to note that Ron Barrett's original illustrations have been faithfully used in the cartoon. "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" offers the perfect tall tale for reading and enjoyment in the classroom.
