Back to school with a new month, a new season and a new year.
We had a lot of updating to accomplish with the Calendar.
January February 
March April May and June
July August 
September October
November December too!
Winter Spring Summer Fall
They are seasons, 4 in all
Weather changes, sun and rain and snow
Leaves fall down and flowers grow.
We made a list of words we think of when we hear the word winter.
We had the good luck of snow in the playground.
We created winter scenes.
We painted a snowy day ( or blizzards...) with bubble wrap.
We expanded on a book with creative thinking and art.
The Mitten by Jan Brett is a winter story filled with fun possibilities.
After the story we discussed how incredible it was all the animals fit in small knitted mitten.
Morah Katie: We each have a mitten, and it is sooooo big it can fit a ?????
I think my mitten can fit a..... Whale!
Dena: A whale?! Mine can fit a train!
Kian: Oh well mine can fit a dinosaur.
Noah: My mitten can fit a huge box.
Josiah: Mine can fit a lot of boxes too!
Tori: Mine can fit a fish.
We had enough snow for snowballs, we did not have enough for a snowman; we drew one instead.
