Snowman Theme ~ Day One

We missed all our snowy, extremely cold weather for this theme...  but the children are still enjoying it!

We started off with our daily question that I got from "Making Learning Fun".  We talked about the results of this question.

I introduced our snowman theme with the book, "Frosty the Snowman".  I read it the first time and then I sang it.

We then watched "Frosty the Snowman Part 1".  The children were intrigued as most of them had never seen Frosty before.

Then the fun began...  we tried to build a snowman.  We had a few little piles of snow (more like ice than snow) left from the big storm we had last week... so I thought we'd give it a try.  It didn't work out like I'd wanted it to but we still had fun trying.  Here we are working on our masterpieces...

Well they look like melting snowmen... but it was very warm in our daycare room!!!

We then made cotton ball snowmen from a pattern over at which you can find here.

 We learned the poem, "Five Little Snowmen" which goes like this...

Five little snowmen standing in a row,
Each with a hat and a big red bow.

Five little snowmen dressed for a show
Now they are ready, where will they go?

Wait till the sun shines.  Then they will go,
Down through the fields with the melting snow.

And we made Five Little Snowmen

Stay tuned for more of our Snowman Theme!!!
