Snow Fun~

We're learning about Winter Wonderland. Last week and this week. What a fun way to learn about snow, then to bring it in the house and play with it. The kids thought this was fun and we really didn't get that cold. The hands got a little cold, but we had a towel to wipe out hands off, and dig back in the snow again. :)

We added aminals, cars and other toys to play in the snow. We tried to make a snowman, but no luck. The snow was to fine.

This week we'll we talking about snowmen. The book we're reading during circle time is Snowmen at Night. Did you ever wonder what snowmen do at night? Well - we found out. Ask your children. See if they remember all the fun things the snowmen do.

~Happy New Year~

Happy New Year!!!!!
It's back to "work" for all of us. We had a fantastic morning.... We are back into the swing of things with preschool. We started with our community circle. The children were glad to be back on routine. The book we are reading this week during community circle is The Mitten by Jan Brett. We will have some projects we're going to do with this book, plus we are working with the letter w, number 5, shape triangle and color white. Newsletters for January are in the kids bins along with a new contract for the year and a vacation request form. I did up the form so that when you want to request time off you will be able to use this form and I will have a record of the request. :)
