When snow falls, it makes such a dramatic difference in our environments and it’s exciting for us all. Especially for young children who haven’t experienced many winters. You can turn this excitement into learning by talking, experimenting and manipulating the snow in your back yard or park. Snow on the ground provides first hand experiences with vocabulary words such as: melting, freezing, frozen, ice/icy, tracks, slippery, crunchy, cold and warm. There’s a storywalk on display with activities at the Main Library for the book Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats you might want to visit this month too.
