Sing a Song
See the snowflakes falling down,
(Hold hands high, move fingers rapidly and bring hands to lap)
Softly, softly to the ground.
They make a blanket soft and white
To keep the flowers through winter's night.
(Pat lap gently with hands as though patting snow on flower bed)
See the snowflakes on their way,
Twirling, swirling as they play.
(Same as first, but move arms around as brought down)
Is it not a pretty sight - when all the earth is dressed in white?
The Cat in the Hat: Stuck in Snow!
The theme for March is SEASONS. Winter just ended, but it may still snow! Making paper snowflakes with scissors and folded paper is a great way to help your child develop the fine motor skills they will need as they learn to write. You can also incorporate conversation about angles and shapes as you cut out parts of the folded paper, a great introductory math lesson!
