To prepare for our winter walk, students have been learning ways ways in which temperature changes affect us in our daily lives. One of the best ways to prepare for winter is to know what type of clothing to wear to stay warm. When the snow starts to fall and it is time to head outside to play, it is imperative that students know how to dress appropriately. Students came up with several items of clothing that people may wear in the winter. To support learning, ask your child comprehension questions. Some possible questions may include:
What should you wear before heading into the snow?
Why would you dress this way in the snow?
Students had fun dressing their snowman collage in warm winter clothes. They learned that there’s dressing for the cold AND there’s dressing for snow - two different things. Dressing for the cold involves some layered regular clothing — so wear those hoodies and sweaters — and then your basic coat/hat/mittens combo. Dressing for the snow involves the same stuff, but with more waterproofing. Students should also wear warm boots. It helps to wear snow pants and/or long underwear if the kids are going to be outside playing in the snow.
Room 9 & 11 will be sharing their learning every Friday.
