Theme: Winter

Welcome back and best wishes for a happy, healthy 2023!

We have many fun learning experiences planned for our exploration of winter.

Circle time activities will include reading books about snow, winter, and arctic animals. We’ll play winter charades and do experiments with ice and gummy bears!

In the dramatic play area, we’ll use our imaginations to go ice skating and ice fishing.Music time will find us moving like snowflakes, dancing the freeze dance, and singing winter songs.

The letter of the week activity is M is for mitten.
