Willow Room- Terrific 2's and 3's class
We read "The hat" by Jan Brett
We asked the children "What color hat did you wear to school today?"

We did "I like my hat", "Couch potato pokey" and "Finger Poppin" for music today.

We played with real snow in our sensory table -we wore mittens.
Our dramatic corner is now set up as a grocery store.
Oak Room- Pre- k class
We are learning about hibernation and having fun with bears. We read "Tracks in the snow" , "Big Tracks, Little Tracks" and the letter O book.
We cut out cave shapes and glued them onto a piece of paper. Then we took animal foot print stampers and stamped them on the paper. We added some cotton for snow.
We put some snow in a cup and watched how long it took to melt and how much water was left in the cup when it melted.
We dripped water colors into a tub of snow.
We did "Dancing scarves blues" (using scarves) and we did some hibernation rhymes.
