As winter arrives so do coats, hats, and gloves to keep track of so please be sure to label everything and teach your child organizational strategies such as putting their hat and gloves in the sleeve of their coat. This month we will be talking about, putting others before yourself, this is extremely difficult for children. We will focus on what to give for the holidays rather than what we get.
- November 30 – December 4 –It is a Mad Lib Christmas as we try creating our own version of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas using all of the parts of speech we know to fill in the blanks. I suspect the results will be hilarious. Be sure to stop by to read the posted story it is sure to put a smile on your face.
- December 7 – 11 – As we talk about homes this week we thought it might be fun to build one, and then we thought it might be fun to eat one. So we are combining two of our favorite things and we are going to build and eat a gingerbread house.
- December 14 – 18 – It’s snowing, it’s snowing, well at least in our room it is as the scissors flash and snips of paper fly, yup that’s right it is a paper snowflake marathon. With designs from simple to elaborate it is lots of fun for all ages it’s going to be a regular blizzard in here.
- December 21 – 23 – We are architects this week as all of the children rise to the challenge to use a ruler and make a picture of a house using only straight lines. They will be encouraged to be creative and add in as much detail as possible. Straight-line dog on the porch maybe? We will be doing cooking activities, art projects, and hoping for enough snow to go out and build snow sculptures. REMINDER: TTLC will be closed December 24 & 25.
