This week at The Children’s House we will be talking about the season of winter – the type of weather that we get in winter & how it affects animals, the clothes we have to wear, the different signs that winter is here e.g. leaves have fallen off trees, days are shorter etc. We will be planting bulbs and explaining that plants stay under the soil until the weather gets warmer again in the spring time, and we will be making mittens while talking about keeping warm in the winter time. It is important in these discussions to ask the children open ended questions, so that we are not just giving information to them to recite back to us, but rather asking their opinions and seeing what they come up with from their observations of the world. At the end of the week we will also be making snow dough!!
I’m a Little Snowman
I’m a little snowman, look at me,
There are my buttons 1, 2, 3.
These are my eyes and this is my nose,
I wear a hat and scarf – brrr it’s cold!!
