Don't you just love it when 2 activities being done for separate reasons fall together like perfect puzzle pieces?
I realized as I passed out papers that some students did not understand the Boehm Concepts that we use to sped time on in kindergarten past. So I decided to play a game for a few minutes before the fire drill. We practiced front, behind, over, under, around etc. Check out the cool video!
And how did it fall together so perfectly, you ask?We read the book Over and Under the Snow by Kate Messner.
This is great book that tells about the "secret kingdom under the snow."
It has now morphed into study of animals and their winter activities especially bumblebees! Can't wait to learn all about the animals with the students!
