Today, we talked about Winter! It's something the class seems to be looking forward to though its confusing now because we've had quite a bit of snow this Fall! The class had stories to share about throwing snow, making snowmen, wearing big coats and mittens and much more. So, we continued on our seasons windows by adding our winter pictures. The windows have been a great way to express everyone's view of the seasons, because every day as part of our morning routine, we look out the window to observe the weather.
O.S seasons window. For his fall picture he drew rain and in the winter one, he said "It's starting to snow"
|J.M seasons window. For her Fall picture, she said "I'm happy that it's raining" and in her Winter one, she explains her picture, "It was snowing. I was playing with the snowman and threw snow at my sisters and my mom"|
|J.C window. For Fall, he says " That's me in the rain" and for Winter, "It was snowing. I get my big coat and mittens. I went to school."|
|G.A's Winter picture. "My mommy and me went to the Price Chopper in the snow."|
|I thought this was an interesting and really creative version of Fall. A.R drew a rain cloud and a boy falling.|
Today, we talked about the letter Y, learned songs about the letter, practiced writing the letter and I brought in a yo-yo to pass around! It was great practice in motor skills--a lot of the children were much more experienced than I with it and many of them had some great yo's (is that the proper term for it?) and made the yo-yo light up!
