Snowy Quarantine

Our week at home while we awaited test results was busy with remote learning. We had fun singing songs and reading stories on our morning zooms, then using those stories to do activities throughout each day.

Monday we read The Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett, which initiated some gingerbread baby creation activities. Some families made gingerbread houses and gingerbread cookies, which they shared on our zoom.

Children made color monsters by blowing paints into shapes and describing which emotions they represented and what made them feel that way.

There was lots of outdoor play like the Six Snowy Sheep who engaged in fun snowy activities, and plans for how to spend a snow day, like Geraldine in Geraldine’s Big Snow.
