With the first full month of winter behind us, there has been lots of talk about snowmen. A favorite book to look at and read has been How to Build a Snowman. The infants love to touch the different sensory sections on each page-from a smooth carrot for his nose, to the fluffy snowball used to create the round snowman at the end of the story. Some of our friends have even attempted to taste and even kiss the snowman on the page. There was also a snowman stacking work that the older infants enjoyed working with and a soft snowman bag all of our friends have enjoyed touching that hung near the mirror.
In February, we will be reading a special book for Valentine's day that talks about friendship. We will talk about "red" and "pink" works that are in the classroom and many hearts that can be seen all around.
