>What a fun day! We are back in school. Only 8 children showed up today. We have enjoyed playing. We also went for a walk in the snow. We were actually on a icicle hunt and boy did we find some!
We also made snow cream today. If you want to know how- look here. My mom used to make this every time it would snow. I lived in south arkansas growing up so snow didnt come often. When it did, snow cream was a tradition !
We read the book “Snowy Day”. If I had been on my toes today we would have read it before we went out and point our toes ” this way” and ” that way” like in the book.
We did have a little surprise while we were walking ! Rosanna’s dad came by to say hello. Then, he returned with ROSANNA! We were excited to see her ! Some of the new activities out today were:
White beads for spooning and counting.
Snow flakes for sorting !
and the ICE BREAKERS game. Ok, I am ready to admit, I hate that game. It does nothing to promote independence and then you help them put it together and it takes about 5 seconds flat for them to knock all the ice cubes out. This game gets the vote for my LEAST FAVORITE game of all time! But…. since we started a winter unit I had to bring it out… right?
