Winter Wonderland

 We had a lovely time at the playground today. One of the perks of
teaching preschool is that I get to go play at the park.  Today after
donning our winter gear we marched to the playground to the tune of
"Willa be wallaby wee an elephant sat on me." I find that at the
playground children spend a great deal of time exploring the
properties of snow. Outside time is as important as inside time
because the children need the physical outlet and they need the
opportunity to practice their social skills in a less structured
setting.  Even the process of putting their snowsuits on and walking
in a line with a partner teaches valuable lessons about independence
and safety.  ~Ms. Melanie
