Snowmen At Night: Pre-K; Forgot to have them make/decorate their snowman. (Di-cut them yesterday; sitting on my desk).:(
Will have other pre-k class in tomorrow; can use theirs and catch the others next week.They liked the story. We counted the snowmen on several pages and talked about what they did at night.
Snowmen At Night/Kinders:
They liked the story and the song to get up and move to; "Dance Like Snowflakes" (So wiggly yesterday!)
They had no problem re-calling what happened in the story. I had them pretend they were a Snowman and told them to write/draw what they would do at night, if they snuck out from where they lived.
Kindergarten loved this story! They also did not have trouble recalling some of the things that snowmen do at night. They did their best to copy down a couple of things we brainstormed on their own paper. Some had a little bit of trouble with this though.
12-12-14: Snowmen At Work; 4yr. olds; The story line for these books are kind of over their heads; for the 3-yd. olds too. But we talk about the different things they did and had the kids tell me what kind of a job they are doing. I found this link to you-tube; A Snowman song that you can do actions to . The kids did like it because they could move a little.:) https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=-b-U1eQqBmk (I'm A Little Snowman). 1:45;
12-17-14; Snowmen At Christmas; I read this to 4-yr. olds, but read "What Could Be Keeping Santa" to 3-yd. olds. I found a Dancing Christmas Tree Song (1:20), that I have used with these groups and K's to get the wiggles out at the end. They liked it and didn't want to stop:)
