We had a good day today as we continued to talk about winter.
I took out the ” fake snow” for the kids to play with. It is a mixture you buy from an educational store and add water and WAHH LAHH! We have snow.
Ms Dallas did some assessments today using a snow flake and the lower case letters. We may try this again in a more quiet room with less distractions. 🙂
We read the story the mitten today. It is a story about a little boy that loses one of his mittens outside in the woods and several animals from the forrest climb in to keep warm.,,,including a bear. Will a bear fit inside a mitten ? This also gave us the opportunity to talk about where these animals really live or sleep. Did you know that frogs are hibernating animals and they sleep in the mud ?
The IPAD continues to be popular.
We played a math game with our snow flake numbers.
Still having healthy low fat , whole food lunches ! This is a great way to bring in the new year in a healthy way with your kiddos. We have been doing these lunches here all year now and so far no one has kicked ,screamed or bit a teacher. Try it at home. It is never too late to start good eating habits .
When we played outside today I introduced ” freeze tag” Sounds simple enough, right ? It was hilarious. Little kids running everywhere screaming and laughing. It was more like Freeze chaos but it was fun . My favorite part was when Katelyn said ” Lets play freeze armadillo! ” Ooookkk.. tell me now. “well, you are the hunter and we are the armadillos! You tag us and we freeze like armadillo!” OOOKKKK!! She runs and I tag her. She falls to the ground and rolls over on the ground on her back in a ball , ( paws up ) . HILARIOUS!
After getting tired of that game the kids played Ring Around the Rosie. I loved their rendition !
I will try to post the videos on Facebook. Vimeo is being as lazy as I have been this afternoon.
