Snowmen At Night

I believe that you can never have too many good books.  At our little yellow school, books and reading are an important part of who we each are.  From watching our youngest preschoolers in our reading corners fully immersed in a book and making up their own words to watching our second and third year students (JK and SK age) reading those same books to their younger classmates, books and stories bring us together.  At the end of our circle time each day, the teachers read a book to the children.  The children look forward to choosing which book will be read.  It is such a thrill to be reading a book to the children and hearing the older students reading right along.

Recently, we read the book Snowmen At Night.  It is a book about a little boy who notices that his snowman is a little disheveled each morning.  It makes him wonder what snowmen do at night when we are all sleeping.  Our preschool, JK and SK aged children thought the things the snowmen got up to at night were very funny.  Some were worried and asked "Is it real?''   

After reading the book, we asked each child "What would you do if  you were a snowman at night?"  

Here are some of the responses.  (You can click on the images to make them larger.)

Three year old A. said "I would dance."

Five year old S. said "I would write a book about being a snowman."
Three year old M. said "I would play outside with my snowman friends."

Five year old I. said I would decorate Christmas trees and hold hands around them."

Five year old D. said "I would play hockey."

Three year old P. said "I would play in the snow."

Five year old K. said "I would play with my sister."

Three year old O. said "I would jump around and play."

You can find magic wherever you look.
Sit back and relax, all you need is a book.
