January was supposed to be all about snow! It still is, but we've had to put some of our science activities on hold. The morning class was able to collect a jar full of nice clean snow and wait for it to melt and then observe it (all full of black bits -- ask your children where they think the black bits came from -- we had some VERY interesting answers). We all agreed that we shouldn't ever eat snow. The afternoon class will try that experiment whenever it snows again.
We've been reading many books about snow! Our favourites have been Snowballs, Stella Queen of the Snow, Stranger in the Woods, and Littel Puppy Lost. Ask your child what their favourite book was, and why. They could also try to retell you the story.,
