As we work toward completing our book, science experiment, and movie about our learning we are still immersing ourselves in winter...and even animals.
Our playground is brimming with snow, each day the brave souls who have no fear of frostbite put on their gloves and dig into the snow at the sensory table. We add materials like measuring cups, spoons, tongs, glass rocks, and animals.
Children plan before building in block center. I found small clipboards recently, which I am kicking myself for not buying more of, and children sketch their idea. Today, all of the children abandoned their plans to work on P's zoo. It was a wonderful collaboration to observe.
