fall 2006 homeschooling, snow is coming

The first half of December was spent doing things related to the snow we were starting to see, though not as often as we would have expected for this part of the country at this time of year -- for the most part it was a very mild December. But there was enough flurries and squalls to get the kids in the spirit, and we read stories about first snow, early winter, shortening days, and chilly nights. We shopped for snow boots and pants and hats and ice skates. We sang songs about winter and snow. We talked about all the fun we'd have in the snow when we finally get a big storm. We caught snowflakes on our tongues, made and followed tracks in the snow. But mostly we spent as much time outdoors in the unusually mild weather as we could, talking about how once the snow came, we'd be spending more time indoors.
