Weekly Themes #23 It’s Snow Time! for 3-5 year olds

It’s Bibi again!  Have you ever seen the snow?  It’s so beautiful, and each snowflake is unique….just like me and you!  If you can’t see the snow where you live…maybe you can get a snowcone!  Any way you scoop it, snow is amazing!

Read Together at Home

Here are some books to read together!  You can download and save them and keep them forever, to read again and again.

Questions to Start a Discussion

  1.  Snow – What do the children do in the snow?
  2.  Chunu & Munu: It’s freezing, you can ask kids – What does it mean to be freezing? What happens to your body when you feel very cold?

Preguntas para iniciar una discusión

  1. Nieve!- ¿Qué hacen los niños en la nieve?
  2. El muñeco de nieve que habla
  3. Chunu y Munu: ¡Está helando! ¿Qué significa congelarse? ¿Qué le sucede a su cuerpo cuando usted se siente muy frío?

Things to Do Together

  1. Make a list of all the things you can do in and with snow.
  2. Snow is white – what else can you think of that is white?
  3. If you have cotton balls at home – write the numbers 1 – 5 on pieces of paper. Have your child put the corresponding number of “snowballs” (cotton balls) onto each piece of paper.

Ways to Move Together

  1. Snowy Pokey – sung to the tune of “Hokey Pokey”

You put your right mitten in,  You take your right mitten out, You put your right mitten in, And you shake it all about. You do the snowy pokey (shiver), And you turn yourself around, That’s what it’s all about! 

(Repeat with a left mitten, right boot, left boot, long scarf, warm cap).

       2. Can you…

  • Waddle like a penguin on ice?
  • Glide like an ice skater?
  • Freeze like a snowman?
  • Fall gently like a snowflake?
  • Through an imaginary snowball?

Share Together

At the end of the week, reflect on what you read, and what you did.

  • Did you learn anything new this week?
  • If or when you get to play with snow, what is the first thing you want to do?
