Continuing on with our Winter / The Four Seasons theme, we learned a new song / poem called The First Snow. We learned new winter vocabulary and practiced memorizing the words as we sang along to the song on CD.
Afterwards we cutout a picture of the boy from the song and helped him get dressed to go play outside. We colored and cutout the different winter clothes and discussed the correct sequence the boy would need to put them on.
Finally we wrote directions for others on how to get dressed for winter, and during centers students could create Venn Diagram to compare and contrast winter to summer!
We read the story “Christmas Cookies” which is a story that discusses the process that a girl goes through to make cookies for Christmas. In each page there is also a vocabulary word that children learn.
We discuss the main idea and details and students think-pair-share the words that they remember from the book. Then they illustrate one vocabulary word that they chose and 1st graders use it in a sentence.
