Preschool Corner ~ The Snowy Day


This was a week filled with a few wonderful distractions.  We watched our neighbors little girl one day and daddy, who has been working LOTS of overtime, was home most of the week.  The kids thought they should have the entire week off since daddy was home ~ mommy disagreed!

We did manager to get in some school during the week.  This week we had fun reading The Snowy Day and using Homeschool Creations The Snowy Day Literature Pack and 1+1+1=1’s Raising Rock Stars Preschool Letter S curriculum as our main sources for learning fun. 

~Our Week~

Aiden who usually loves cutting, had a TOTAL meltdown because he was trying to cut a wavy line and he couldn’t keep his scissors on the black line.  I ended up telling him to stop and not worry about it.


The same kid, later in the week was cutting away, making snowflakes out of coffee filters. 


We filled our schoolroom windows with the pretty snowflakes.


We all had fun playing with our snow play dough and making a snow family.


Aiden who is still in robot mode, made a robot snowman.


Aiden also had fun playing in the Snowy Day sensory tub he helped me put together.

~iPod Apps~

This week Aiden played Snow Brawlin’ on the iPod


and Teach Me Kindergarten, which teaches addition, subtraction, spelling, and dolch sight words.



We were very blessed to have just enough snow the end of the week for the kids to go sledding.


Aiden loves to wear sissy’s hat ~ and he looks so cute in it! : )

~Learning Links~


While I didn’t get ANY pictures of the printable work we did this week we do so some.  Here are the links for what we used this week:

Popping in from Preschool Corner. We did some of these same activities when we read The Snow Day! I will have to check out the Teach Me Kindergarten app.

Stopping by from Preschool Corner. I love the snowmen playdough and the sensory bin. How fun! My son doesn't like the cutting sheets, but he loves cutting freely. I decided he is getting enough cutting practice doing it freely instead of using sheets.

Kids are so funny that way - melting down over something they know how to do! I love the pictures you got! I am bookmarking these awesome ideas for FIAR...

You have a lovely blog!

Coloring Pages said...

Coloring Pages and pictures, crafts are often the preferred popular projects for kids. These projects can be used for young children and also as therapy and relaxation for seniors too. Free color sheets are popular in shops and are commonly used in classroom activities or in parties.
