Theme Descriptions

 
 
Once Upon a Time: Enter a fairy tale land of castles, dragons, kings, and princesses. The
children will read classic fairy tales and be encouraged to use their imaginations for some
creative make-believe play!
 
Cooling Off: Snuggle in for a fun theme covering hibernation, migration, and plenty of
late fall learning activities. The children will learn how people and animals prepare for and survive the winter in cold and snowy climates. They will learn to be thankful for warm family gatherings and cozy surroundings as the cold sets in!
 
Activities for Home
 
Take a break from cooking! Invite your child to help you prepare the ingredients for “Sandwiches Fit for Royalty!” Set out a variety of sandwich toppings, breads, and condiments
(see list on opposite side for ideas). Let everyone create their own sandwich. Use your extra free time to sit down and read one of the books from the Book List to your child.
• Visit with your child about what you are thankful for. To foster thankfulness in your child, ask her what makes her happy,
teach her to say “thank you” in appropriate situations, read books about thankfulness, and model gratitude in your words
and actions. Be patient! Thankfulness is a virtue that requires practice throughout the year.
• Provide an opportunity for your child to observe wildlife throughout the winter months. Set up a bird feeder or squirrel
feeder in your yard. Position it where your child can easily view it. Keep the feeder filled throughout the winter because animals will come to rely on you as their food source.

Dragons Skipping
Sung to “The Mulberry Bush”
Dragons go (skipping) ‘round their cave,
‘Round their cave, ‘round their cave.
Dragons go (skipping) ‘round their cave,
On this sunny morning.
Repeat with: hopping, dancing

Winter Animals
Sung to “Clementine”
Little geese, little geese,
Can you feel it getting cold?
Flap your wings and start your journey,
Find a warm place to call home!
Fluffy fox, fluffy fox,
Can you feel it getting cold?
Grow your fur to keep you warm,
Find a den to call your home!
Great big bear, great big bear,
Can you feel it getting cold?
Snuggle up tight for winter,
Find a cave to keep you warm!
All the animals, all the animals,
They can feel it getting cold.
They prepare and gather food,
They find a place to call a home
