In the last 2 weeks, Mr. Moises has been zipping his jacket all by himself.  He rejects any help and proudly proclaims, "I can do it myself."  Yes you can kiddo!  In K4, we encourage the children to take personal responsibility for their belongings and take charge of dressing and undressing themselves upon arrival, outdoor play, and dismissal.  We of course support them along the way with reminders, help if requested, and lots of cheering on - we're their biggest fans!

On this particular day, after some rain and mild weather, we decided to take the kiddos for a little nature walk to distract them from the watery mess of the swamp.  As we walked we made some observation and spotted various nature items that were covered in this green fuzz.  "That's moss!!" Dax shared.  We laughed as we decided the moss was pants for the trees.

Oh the things to see.

As we enter a new term of school, we continue move forward and practice our Zoo-phonics daily.  Zoo-phonics teaches us our letter sounds and letter recognition in a fun, hands on way.  Weston has really taken a liken to our magnets, particularly the small ones with the Zoo-phonics animal cards on them and in this beauty of a clip, he is sitting with Mary-Dale reviewing them and having a blast.  Great work buddy :)

It's beginning to look a lot like Xmas!!!

This week we began a new afternoon tradition of having a hot chocolate and sock party when we come in from outside, just before it's time to go home.  The weather is slowly beginning to be consistently cold, which means our time spent outside will change a bit.  We will continue to dress as warmly as possible to make sure we are comfortable, however the amount of time we spend outdoors may vary.  We are still commited to getting outside everyday, even if it's just for 10, 20, or 30 minutes.  

It was a particularly chilly Monday afternoon and we made our way inside a little earlier than usual.  To help the kiddos warm up, we put the kettle on and enjoyed a cup of hot chocolate and cookies.  To make the experience even more cozier, we sat around in our sock feet as well, and then got ready for the bus when we were nicely thawed.

The warm temperature on Wednesday caused the ice to melt and made quite a mess in the woods, so instead we took a walk down to the river to throw rocks and of course, crush more ice :)

Last week we had some rain and some areas of our forest space was flooded.  Thankfully some cold temperatures froze the ice and the kiddos had a blast crushing it.
