Winter Happenings

The countdown for warmer weather has started for me, but until then I would like to share some of the things we've been up to in January!

First there was a mini unit on bears and hibernation....after reading the book Bear Snores On I created several opportunities within the classroom for the kiddos to bring the book to "life".

Art - Cooperative Project
Final product!

Fine motor- tearing/cutting/gluing white paper for snow

Large motor - painting making bear tracks

Used rolling pin and bubble wrap to make textured bear face

Sensory Table

Their favorite place... tent covered with brown fitted sheet

                      Check out this new counting product in my  TPT Store
Use for number recognition, one to one correspondence, understanding relationship between numbers and quantity (K.CC.B.4), Count to answer how many (K.CC.B.5),  and writing number 1-20 (K.CC.A.3)

Lots of fun and smiles!!
