Time to Cosy Up with a Good Winter Book

on January 28, 2015

photo-5We had such an awesome response to our Christmas book list that we thought we would write up another one for you.

We’ve been learning about the seasons and seasonal changes in Kindergarten, and of course we’re focusing on Winter right now. We’ve made some amazing art projects, we’re starting to use frame sentences and next month we start ice-skating as part of our school’s Winter sports program.

But we think the best part of Winter is the chance to cosy up with a good book! We love bringing our classes together at the meeting area and inviting the children to sit closely together to listen to a great story. Here are the books we’ve read recently to our classes.
