Snowflakes and Snowmen

We are reading so many different books about winter. So far our favorite book is Millions of Snowflakes by Mary McKenna Siddals.We love to count along with the book, and copy all of the things the book talks about! We all sat down to paint SNOWMEN! We each chose our colors and practiced making "circles"!When we were done painting, we used yarn to make "mouths" and glued eyes on our snowmen! Our masterpiece will be hanging in the hallway this week! ;

Bowls

Lets see what we can do with these…………….They are great for putting things in………….You can even dump stuff out and pour them in another………….We can count them and tell you what colors they are………………….When you have had a hard day, they are great for sitting and resting on……………………..Ah ha! The funnest thing is wearing them as hats!!!!!!! But after a while, CamRen let us all know that we needed to wear the "real" hats, not the bowls as hats! ;

Our Neighborhood

We all sat together and started drawing…………….Luke started talking about houses. The children started talking about different colored houses, and before you knew it, we were all drawing houses. We brought in a big piece of paper and the children glued the houses on it. Next we made "streets" so that we could get from house to house! We used blue, green, yellow and red tape. Some of the streets wound up on the walls But in the end, we made a very "kid friendly neighborhood"!!!!!!!!!!!
