"If All Of the Snowflakes Were Chocolate Bars and Milk Shakes"

The children arrived at school this morning excited by the snow. "It's snowing outside!" they exclaimed as they entered the classroom all bundled. Last week the children noticed that the gourds dried up and make a sound when they shake them. We began Morning Meeting stretching out bodies as we reached up to the sky and woke up our bodies as we sang  Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes. Then we passed the gourds and took turns shaking them. Scarlett  noticed that one gourd did not dry up and did not make a sound. "Hey, this is one quiet!" Then we shook our gourds together as we listened to Polly Wolly Doodle. Then we read Silly Sally.

During Free Play, the children played in the sand box, with the red flubber in the sensory table. Hudson and Scarlett worked with clay. Then we played in the school bus. Before lunch, we read The Very Hungry Caterpillar and sang The Beehive Song, Sambalae, and If All Of the Raindrops Were Lemon Drops and Gum Drops. Next, we took turns guessing who's name starts with which letter.
