Welcome back! The month of January will be our ‘cold weather’ month. During Snow Week we will talk about cold weather, snow and snowmen. We will be making snow collages and paint with Epson Salts to create snow pictures. We will begin our snow-themed songs and finger plays that we will sing all month. If the chilly weather returns you can point out the frost to your child. During Circle Time I will introduce Bear. We will dress Bear for warmth and talk about warm clothes we wear during chilly weather.
If you have family pictures, especially any snow pictures, you would like to share I will be posting them on the bulletin board in the Circle Room. It will be fun to see what people did during break.

It is Snowing
It is snowing, it is snowing
All around, all around
Soft and pretty snowflakes
Soft and pretty snowflakes
On the ground, on the ground.
I’m a chubby snowman short and fat
Here is my broomstick and here is my hat
When the sun come out and shines all day
I just start to melt away….
Oh no I’m a puddle!
Little Snowman
A chubby little snowman with a carrot nose
Along came a bunny and what do you suppose?
That hungry little bunny looking for some lunch
Ate that snowman’s carrot nose crunch, crunch, crunch
Mitten Song
Thumbs in the thumb place, fingers all together.
This is the song we sing in mitten weather
When it is cold it doesn’t matter whether
mittens are wool or finest leather.
Thumbs in the thumb place fingers all together
This is the song we sing in mitten weather.
The cold wind doth blow
And we shall have snow
What will poor robin do then, small thing?
She will sit in the barn
And keep herself warm
And hide her head under her wing. Small thing.
