It may not feel much like Winter in the Rochester area so far, but here at St. Mark’s Preschool we’re learning all about this cold, snowy season! Since we got back from Christmas break, we’ve been reading books about Winter, including “Snow Bear,” “A Hat for Minerva Louise,” and “Biscuit’s Snowy Day.”
The children’s favorite activity over the past couple of weeks has been playing with our “Insta-Snow.” Since there hasn’t been any snow outside, I had to resort to the artificial kind! The children did a great job determining whether it was real or fake. We also discussed how water turns to ice when it freezes and watched an ice cube melt in our classroom.
Next week, we’re going to start learning about polar animals and how they stay warm!
