Baby It's Cold Ouside and it is going to be that way for awhile!!! There is so much fun learning with Snowman so we are going to continue on with this theme for a bit! We have music today and I am sure that Ms. Lind will be able to pull in some fun, cold, wintery music!!!
We are going to have some fun Snowman Center Time activies. The kiddos will be able to create their own snowmen out of playdough. I love having them work with playdough as it is such a great sensory activity and often times a somewhat messy activity that does not come out often at home. Our class LOVES spending time with the playdough and they do very well when working with guided activities. Let's see how high we can make those snowmen!!!!
We are also going to work on spelling our names. Each child will have their own snowman with name and cooresponding letters. We will work with each kiddo one-on-one during Center Time throughout the next several weeks. We will be sure to send these home so they can get some extra practice in!!!
To go along with our Snowman Theme, we will be creating this adorable Textile Snowman Craft. The multi-step directions are great for our little ones. The placement of items and glue work helps with those spacial and fine motor skills. I also love using the different shapes and textures that we are sure to discuss while we are crafting! I can't wait to see what creations our little ones will make!
