Ms. Laree's MWF AM 3's

We had a fantastic time last week talking all about winter.   We talked about how to keep warm in the winter, fun things to do in winter and all about winter animals. 

 In Art we did ice painting (painted with colored ice), we had frozen treasures in ice where we had to melt the ice to get them out.  We used shapes to make a snowman and then used bubble wrap to paint snow over the top.  We made penguins and hung those outside the classroom.  We drew winter scenes in crayon and then painted them with Epsom salt to make the picture look icy.  We also made snowmen out of play-doh.

In Math with counted snowballs into mittens, we counted marshmallows in hot cocoa (oh how they wanted to eat the marshmallows while gluing and counting – so I gave them a few at snack time!) and we cut out snowflakes.

In Handwriting Without Tears we worked on the letter “O” and the #6.  We also reviewed the following letters and practiced writing them on white boards: L F E T H C U O.  I was amazed at how well they were able to write these letters.  I am very proud of my class!!

In Science we talked about hot and cold.  We tasted hot cocoa and shaved ice.  One of the favorite activities was ice-skating in our socks on the floor and then our icy snowstorm.  We put on scarfs and gloves and then I showered the kiddos with shaved ice.  We had so much fun – it was as if it were snowing in our classroom!! That was my favorite activity of the week!!
We read several books on winter and snow and played one of their favorite songs “The Little Snowflake”. 

Thank you again for allowing me the pleasure of teaching your children and you are fabulous parents as well!
