Well, don't you just love a good ice storm?
I do enjoy the beauty that comes with it,
just not the missing school...
...especially because this is the
beginning of the BEACH unit!
A long time ago, I had a preschool class with 10 kids in it. One cold wintery week in January, five of the ten of their families were on a tropical vacation! So we decided to join them in spirit and the
first annual BEACH theme in winter began!
First things first,
this fella brought FRUIT snacks
for the letter Ff treat this week!
The next photos are of the kids just having fun exploring the new beach items...
We created these cute chicka chicka boom boom coconut trees with last name practice for the hallway!
Thursday brought new morning challenges...beach style!
Spelling Beach Words...
Fish Numeric Order...
Coconut Tree counting by 5s...
We also had centers on SHARK DAY!
