As winter is here, without snow!, we read books about snow today:
SNOW! SNOW! SNOW! by Lee Harper
SNOW FRIENDS by M. Christina Butler
SNOWMEN AT NIGHT by Caralyn BuehnerActivities:
Flannel of Five Snowmen:
Five snowmen fat.
Each with a black top hat.
Out came the sun and melted one,
Down, down, Down.
Four snowmen fat!
We pretended it was snowing outside and went through the motions of what we would do to get ready to go play, like putting on our boots, hats, coats, gloves, etc. Then going outside and jumping in the snow, stomping around, making snowballs and having a fight and then we made snow angels.
I had them pretend to be snowmen and melt and then thanks to one of the moms we sang the song:
"Once there was a Snowman!"
Craft: I gave them three snowballs to paste on a paper and make their own snowman. I also had them scratch off some christmas tree decorations to decorate our tree at the library.
Thanks everyone for coming and participating. Cya next week.
