Melting Snowman

We have been doing our Autumn theme unit this month.

Today at Circle Time, we talked about the changing weather, and why we call Autumn "Fall". The children all pretended they were trees, and we let our leaves flitter and flutter down to the ground. Then we asked the children to show us signs of Fall. Together, we did the action signs for dressing up in our hats, sweaters, mitts, and boots. One child even tried to put both of his imaginary boots on at the same time! LoL.

Even though we have no snow yet, we got out our new Melting Snowman activity kit for fun. They took turns building the snow men, then coming back a few moments later to find it all melted. They thought it was quite funny!
