First we made a list of winter sports , sledding , skiing , skating . Then we read Bella gets her skates on . It talks about many out door winter fun things to do . Then i showed them my daughter skate . Then i found as i don't draw google picture and printed out . They colored it ,cut it out , hole punch where laces go and lace some yarn through the holes . and added a blade foil .. Happy Winter
Well I know it Letter Thursday and our Letter Is Jj We had jelly of course and tried and voted strawberry or grape . Then when we where done the girls got the puzzles out . But look who visit today . Not 100% sure where he lives but he needs to find a new home . So this is about 1 1/2 feet from my back door and then when i made all the kids go to the deck guess who came with us . That when i pulled all the kids in the house wet boots and all . He stayed for 45 minute and then i final or i thought i got him to leave and a while later was on front pouch and he came back . I hope he gone now i did see him fly off this time .. Boy he wanted to play today .
See They liked the box of hats today to hang up on the clothes line and to wear . We also make Hats to take home out of paper plates and paper. We also worked on more Dice math (which they love ) younger one roll one dice and color in the box and older one roll two dice and add together and color in the number . This sheet i got over at mail box companions. But can make your own like i did earlier in week . Then we also practice writing our full first name . I did letter trace from DLTK. Great site for printable numbers and letters.
I came to them wearing a glove and one mitten . We talked about the Difference and what they wear . Then we made mittens , colored , cut out , whole punch and then laced their mitten . Then we had our clothes line up to hang mittens , try on gloves and mittens today . Seem to enjoy !
This will works into next week when we study Arctic animals and how they keep warm . So how do we stay warm in the winter? I came to circle time wearing my gloves ,coat, scarf,hat and boots. We talked Little about each piece. Then we made this craft a paper doll from http://www.dltk-holidays.com/winter/mpaper-winterwear.htm
We also did Clifford's Try -Along . What should she wear . Circling the items Emily Elizabeth should wear for cold, snowy days.
First our week on snowflakes and had a little fun for Friday .
I been teaching them how to draw snowflakes with two x's . so today we got the chalk out and dark paper and draw winter scenes. When that was not enough we got the chalk boards out . We also make sun catchers bird feeders . bird food or cereal or sunflower seed and water .
Lastly other day for snack we played with marshmallow and make snowflakes. yummy !
An Icy Experience so need clear jar water ruler and marker so i fill jar 1/2 full with water and have the kids measure it.Then freeze the water . Take out and measure again . Record your finding . We used predictions . Then we let it melt again and redid above . Beside some fun science . Sciences build vocab. This idea from Mailbox magazine.
Then we did our letter Thursday Ii . I use mom printable. I also made a math game today snowflake math . I took a snowflake cut out wrote numbers over and gave them a dice and dabber to cover the numbers with . Younger children had numbers 1-6 older 1-12 with two dice . They really enjoy this . Great practice adding and number recognition .
