We kicked off the week with a snowflake themed art project. The children worked hard to make beautiful snowflake stamps in blue and white. After they finished stamping, they had a blast shaking glitter all over the paint to make everything sparkle!
On Thursday we got messy! We brought out trays of shaving cream and the kids had SO much fun bulldozing trucks through the "snow" and creating winter scenes with different cold weather animals.
We continued the fun in the hall with shape hockey. The children got to flex their muscles and work on shape recognition as they sent paper plate hockey pucks sailing into the net. It was a great way to get their wiggles out!
The kids found trays with gems, epsom salts, sparkly "snow" and cold weather animals at the light table this week.
We also read Polar Bear Scare, Ten on a Sled and a fun book called Five Penguins on the Ice.
We celebrated birthdays and learned a new winter yoga sequence.
We had fun matching different colored mittens for a sweet kitten and learned a silly songs about a walrus who washes his winter coat and a penguin who come to tea. :)
It was cold, but we had a great time at recess this week!
