S is for Snowman

Ben was so ready to get back into our routine after a month of busyness.  Digging back into school wasn’t hard when I told him we’d start out the year doing a “Katy and the Big Snow” lapbook.  This is one of his favorite books and we have the audio version.  No matter what curriculum we use in the future I know we will always incorporate Lapbooks into our learning.  He loves them!  Right now the stack of lapbooks we’ve already completed are next to his seat in the van so every time we go somewhere he reads through them again and again.

Writing letters and numbers in the “snow”.  I made a winter sensory bin with cotton balls, foam balls and glass beads for “ice”.   


We learned

  • What is snow?
  • What is a blizzard?
  • Street signs and Community helpers
  • Reviewed counting by 2’s, 5’s and 10’s
  • Jesus washes us whiter than snow

Ben seemed more like himself this week.  It was good to see him more relaxed.
