This week, I experienced my first snow fall since moving back to the chilly Midwest from sunny California. I guess it’s time to bundle up! Here’s a fun Snow & Clothing preschool storytime. I like to combine the two themes. It was always interesting to do a snow storytime in California… most of the kids had never even seen the stuff 🙂
Also: you may notice me changing the look of my blog/website a couple of times within the next few weeks… please be patient with me as I try to get everything “just right”. I have actually changed the look back to how I originally had it in the first place for this week… kind of retro:)

*The snow fell softly all the night.
It made a blanket soft and white.
It covered houses, flowers, and ground,
But did not make a single sound!
**This is the Way We All Get Dressed (to the tune of “Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush”)
This is the way we all get dressed, all get dressed, all get dressed…so early in the morning
This is the way we put on our shoes… (pants, socks, shirt, coat, etc.)
