We are enjoying the snow but not the cold. This past week, we went outside to walk like Peter, the character in The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. We walked like him, with our toes pointing out and out toes pointing in. There wasn't too much snow where we were so we could not sink our feet in in it like Peter did but I asked the children to find a place with more snow and try it with you. I hope you did.
Please share if you went outside to do any of the things that Peter did:
- tracking with a stick
- building a snowman
- making snow angels
- sliding down a hill
- packing snow to make a snowball
- or any other fun things we can do in the winter.
I am sharing some of the things I love to do in the snow. Have you ever done any of these things? Please post your comments.
Please ask your child to tell you about their observations about snow and matter. Here are some pictures to help them. Post your comments.
