PICTURES! 

We have been continuing to explore the cold season of winter. The children are very excited to touch and feel  our fake snow, our white pretend snow dough and shaving cream. We added animals that you might see in the cold climates: fox, walrus, orcas, penguins, polar bears and sharks. Using our felt stories, we expand our winter theme and include: color recognition, rhyming, big small, medium, numbers and counting.
