Preschool Years at Home

Laughing, Loving, and Learning Together

A Fun-Filled Friday … I hope

on February 3, 2012

My day got off to a jump start this morning when Little Bear woke up about 5 a.m. and started a chain reaction of people waking up tired and grumpy. While she and Baby Bear are now back to sleep, I settled for caffeine in lieu of sleep, and decided to use the early morning quiet to prepare for the end of our week.

As often happens, we’re running out of week before running out of activities. We’ve got MOPS this morning, leaving us with just this afternoon and tomorrow to squeeze as much snowy, polar, Letter Gg fun and learning as possible … time to prioritize!

As we wrap up our snow theme, I want to squeeze in the following read-alouds:

We also still need to make paper snowflakes, sort them from smallest to largest, then toss them up into the air and do our snowflake dance:

Snow is Falling
to the tune of "Are You Sleeping?"

now is falling, snow is falling,
All around, All around.
Whirling, twirling snowflakes,
Whirling, twirling snowflakes
Hit the ground. Hit the ground.

For the letter Gg, we still need to make our great green uppercase G and gluey, glittery lowercase g. The Day the Goose Got Loose is on our must-read list, and we’ve got a related rhyming word match-up to do along with a naked tagboard goose waiting to be dressed in feathers. Little Bear wants to practice writing the letter Gg more as well.

Wrapping up our polar animals theme, I want to help Little Bear do her world map floor puzzle and locate the polar regions once again. Ice Bear and Little Fox somehow jumped out of our stack of Arctic books and got mixed in with our stack of already-read penguin books, so we need to squeeze it in as well. Last of all, we’ve got a polar animal sorting activity to help Little Bear differentiate between Arctic and Antarctic wildlife.
