Dear Preschool Families,
February is bringing us snow, and lots of it. What a short week it’s been together! We were able to make snow angels, shovel paths around our playground, and mix up colored snow potions in our outdoor pots. We also built a family of snowmen in the field on Wednesday afternoon. The children enjoyed rolling big balls of snow and lifting them on top of each other. We even built a snow dog! The children have been shouting out the mantra lately, “We are doing team work!” On Monday, the preschoolers showed great interest in painting branches with Liz in Art Studio. Many preschoolers spent extended periods of time painting the entire branch, over and over. They were also fascinated by feeling glops of shaving cream in the sensory table and then mixing in blue and yellow paint. We have been enjoying some mellow story time with our Learning Buddies on Friday mornings, lounging with fun pictures books and gliding into some play when the books are done. Next week weather conditions allowing, we will be back on the trail! We ended the week with a celebratory dance party in the Forest room, featuring some favorite tunes from the movie Frozen.
