This is such a wonderful time of year to spend with the kids. They are SO excited and the sights, sounds, smells, flavors, and textures of the season are terrifically joyful.
We are learning about the five senses. Here students are exploring in the updated sensory table with their hands. They love the smell of the cinnamon sticks inside!
Our science and observation center is updated with evergreen trimmings and a giant pine cone. The pine scent is wonderful! In science, we tried to collect paperclips from a bowl of rice while blindfolded. It was hard to not rely on sight for the activity. Kids counted and recorded how many paperclips they were able to collect in 30 seconds.
**No matter what I try, the pine photo always resets to upside down on this page. I've given up on fixing it but
I still like the greenery, even if it's defying gravity. ;)
We created pine trees in the snow using three triangles, one rectangle, and dots of white paint.
