Unsurprisingly, snow has been a main topic of conversation lately!
In the couple of days that we have been back together at school, we have been lucky enough to be able to enjoy snow both in and out of the classroom.

Snow Cooking ... and (Clean) Snow Eating
Re-Connecting over a Snow Feast!
Bringing Snow Into the Classroom
We also explored the properties of snow by bringing it inside and observing the changes.
Through a painting exploration using watercolor paints, children discovered some beautiful findings.
Reflecting on our "Home Snow Days"
Thank you for sharing your snow day photos with us!
We used these images to support our work in reflecting on our time in the snow away from school.
"Snowy Day" Drawings
Children revisited their snow day photos while creating their own versions using different drawing tools.

Thank you to everyone for making sure that your child comes to school with cold weather appropriate clothing and accessories. Despite the frigid temperatures this morning, we managed to enjoy our backwards day and found fun ways to keep our heart rate up and our bodies warm.
*** Parents: Please make sure your child has extra clean masks in his/her cubby bag. The cold weather leads to an increase in runny noses and wet masks after spending time outside, so we are changing them more frequently. Thank you!
