Winter Comes to PK2
As the temperature starts to drop, Laurel Robinson and Julie Brackett’s pre-kindergarten for 2-year-old students are learning about winter weather and animals. The students created an arctic ice cave in their dramatic play area, using bubble wrap to create the texture of an ice wall. They then identified winter animals that they could add to their winter scene and what it would be like to live in arctic temperatures. “It is great to see them starting this phase of creating the scene and helping with the construction now that they are a bit older. It is wonderful to give the students ownership and perk their interest in the dramatic play area,” Brackett said.
