This Week in Garden and Mountain

Good afternoon Garden and Mountain families,

This week the children learned about winter and celebrations around the world.  The children sang “Jingle Bells,” “Frosty, the Snowman,” and “If all of the Snowflakes.”  During small circle the children read Llama Llama gives Thanks, Love is You and Me, Peekaboo in the Snow, and The Itsy Bitsy Snowman.  

The children participated in the 9 Gifts of Treehouse this week.  The whole school came together and sang “Jingle Bells” before giving a classroom a small gift.  The children helped unwrap the gift and were excited to see some new teethers to chew on!  

Ms. Kathleen did not disappoint this week with The Marvelous Toy, a song book about a mysterious toy that lights up and makes many different sounds.  The children were also treated to the sounds of dogs, cats, and hedgehogs.  The animal selections were based on the children’s clothing.  

The children finger painted with shimmery paint and used rollers on snowflake shapes.  The children also scooped snow and water in the sensory table.  

We hope you all have a wonderful winter break!

Ms. Amy, Ms. Lindsey, Ms. Jessica, Ms. Stephanie, and Ms. Isabelle
