Brr It's Cold - Part 1

This month has me so excited because I love winter.  We are touching on the arctic (people and animals), and the usual wintry things.

Sensorial has a ton of snowflake and snowmen activities.  I saw this on 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).

Practical Life

What do we wear in the winter? 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.
