Creatures in the Snow


After returning from winter break and two extra days off due to Chicago's arctic cold spell earlier this week, the 3-year-olds in the Upstairs Yellow Room were excited to share their experiences with the winter weather. Inspired by this, they used their imaginations to tell stories about a creature they had come up with and what it experienced in the snow.

The children dictated their stories to the teachers and illustrated their book covers. It was a wonderful way to share their experiences but also to get out the feelings they might have had during this extreme weather. At Akiba-Schechter, every experience is a teachable moment!
