Not much has been happening winter weather-wise around the DC area this year, but winter-a-plenty has been happening in our classes. See for yourself. The kids readily grasp the connections between our stories, such as Lois Ehlert’s Snowballs and Jane Simmons’ Little Fern’s First Winter, to their experiences with the art materials. Hopefully, in the weeks to come, they’ll have some real world experiences with snow before we welcome spring.
