This month at Little Scholars the students read the book, The Mitten by Jan Brett. After daily discussions on the sequence of events from the book, students took turns acting out the animals and "snuggled" their way into a 'mitten' with their friends! We also experimented with painting using ice! These ‘popsicles’ were made with paint and water and froze into writing utensils.
Our students using ice exploration for Creative Arts, Science and Math skills.
The students were working on their fine motor skills by cutting and pasting! They took some time to focus on the sequence of events in The Mitten by Jan Brett and they also explored learning shapes and colors by ice fishing for colored shapes!
Snow cone fun! The students learned how ice can come in many different forms and they made snow cones! The students enjoyed their delicious frozen treats after their ice-skating adventures using ‘ice plates’. They also participated in many more fun hands-on winter activities in their classroom!
The fun continues in our classrooms with identifying the differences in shape sizes (big, medium, small) of all different textured items and learned all about the shapes and sizes when building a snowman. They also participated in many activities that focused on the letter “Dd”.
