We had such a fantastic day learning all about animals in winter. We talked about the letter P and loved playing on the SmartBoard Starfall.com game. We built dens and burrows out of blocks, dressed up in winter clothing and pretended to be animals hibernating in a big cardboard box den. One of our favorite activities was reading "The Mitten" and acting it out. As we came to each new character each child got to hold a mask and be that character. Our favorite part of when the bear sneezes at the end, "ahh, ahh, ahh...choo!" and all the animals flew out of the mitten!
