The First Snowfall

The first arrival of snow caused a flurry of excitement in the SK room.  The large windows in the SK classroom gave them a perfect view as the first snowflakes arrived.  “It’s snowing, it’s snowing” echoed around the classroom, quietly spoken with a sense of wonder which quickly crescendoed to excited chatter as the news spread around.

When the children left the room, they passed on the good news to all they came across.  No matter which grade they informed, all reacted with the same sense of excitement!  “It must be the first day of winter!” Madeleine exclaimed.

Returning to the classroom the talk continued, and was accompanied by examples of “The Hundred Languages of Children.”  Snowflakes appeared at reflection time – the children used coloured pencils and their favourite geoboards to make visible what they had just learned.
