This month has me so excited because I love winter. We are touching on the arctic (people and animals), and the usual wintry things.
|http://www.makinglearningfun.com/themepages/SnowSnowmen.htm has a ton of snowflake and snowmen activities. I saw this on http://mymontessorijourney.typepad.com/ and knew it would be perfect.|
|I presented this activity as a 3-part lesson and then did an extension having Mister and Ladybug find something in the room that was a sphere, cube, and cylinder.|
|Biggest to smallest snowflakes|
|A refresher for counting since we took the month of December off.|
|Mister and Ladybug did their first dot-to-dot at preschool and enjoyed it, so I included it on our shelf. The mat is from Lakeshore Learning (sorry no link).|
|What do we wear in the winter? http://www.makingfriends.com/f_Friends.htm has paper dolls for all the seasons and holidays. Mister and Ladybug have been dressing these people for a few days.|
|How to Draw a Snowman. Mister and Ladybug loved this activity. It was the first time they have had to follow directions like these and I probably assisted more than I should have.|
