We learned about Groundhog Day....I guess the groundhog was right....6 more weeks of winter!!!!! Explored with shadows. Built igloos and burrows. Learned about arctic and antarctic animals and tracks in the snow.
We read lots of Valentine stories and made special cards and pictures for our Valentines. We especially loved "Froggy's First KIss" by Jonathan London. We enjoyed retelling the story, except the part where he gets kissed! YUCK!
Since the Winter Olympics were held in February we were curious about different Winter sports. We really liked watching the halfpipe snowboarders and the ski jumpers! We practiced our measuring skills by launching our own "ski jumpers" to see who would jump the farthest. Well next we move on to March....in like a lion and out like a lamb. I hope Spring will be here soon!
