Winter is Here!

          While the weather outside has been very cold, we are busy inside the Bumble Bee room.  After a long winter break, it has been so nice watching your children interact with their friends!  It has been very obvious that they missed each other over the break!  We have had fun playing with all our new toys that you gave us.  Thank you again for being so generous!  We began the month doing our science experiment watching our liquids turn to solids.  We poured water into ice cube trays, added food coloring and set it outside and observed it freezing.....then we did our beautiful ice paintings!  There was such interest in our new trucks, that we began a unit on transportation.  We are currently talking about trains.  We brought in the train table and have been building train tracks together.  We also read the book --Not A Box  and have been building our own train out of boxes! We are in the middle of painting it now.  We are also practicing our cutting with scissors!  Practice at home too!  We cant seem to do enough puzzles right now!  We have done many floor puzzles together all about transportation.  Your children are growing and developing in so many ways!  Let all your friends know that we are having an Open House at our school on Sunday January 26th from 2-4:00!

          More snow and freezing weather in the forecast.........stay warm.....winter is here!

                                                                                  in friendship,
