December- Winter in the Woods

Dec 8, 2016   //   by Miss Kim   //   Daily Lessons  //  Comments Off on December- Winter in the Woods

Warm up with this cozy theme. Winter helps us understand how nature changes throughout the year. By learning about trees and the animals that live in them, children can see how nature adapts to the seasonal changes. Greet hedgehogs, owls, reindeer, bears and mice. Snuggle up by the fire and journal about your special winter memories.

Our Annual Christmas Party will be Thursday, December 22nd at 6:15 PM!

The children will need to come dressed in their holiday outfits!  They will be putting on a small Christmas concert for the parents!  Santa will also be coming to visit and passing out gifts for the children.  We want the Whole ABC Discovery Family here to celebrate!

I will be putting a sign up sheet for the pitch-in when it gets closer to that date!
