Topic of the Week
This week the children took a closer look at the story The Mitten by Jan Brett. In this story, a young boy loses his mitten in the forest during winter time. Different animals climb into the mitten looking for warmth and shelter from the cold. The children enjoyed learning about new animals, such as a fox, badger, and hedgehog. They especially loved when the mouse made the bear sneeze and all of the animals went flying out of the mitten!
During sensory, the children enjoyed exploring different winter clothes, such as mittens, hats and boots. Another favorite activity this week was to play with forest animals in the sensory table with corn starch and during free play with wooden blocks and empty boxes.
At the art table, the children used the animals to make white footprints on construction paper. They also enjoyed painting with puffy paint made from shaving cream and glue.
Tip of the Week
Traditions Strengthen Relationships
Start rituals that feel natural for your family. One family might have a weekly craft night, while another may eat breakfast for dinner once a month. When you hit upon something that works, plan to do it again. Repeat it on a regular basis and — presto!— a new tradition is born that gives your youngster a sense of family.
