Students Learn in a Winter Wonderland


Abraham Lincoln Pre-Kindergarten students recently found themselves engaged in an instructional and interactive winter workshop of educational tasks and activities. Special adults (parents, family members) were even invited to join them at various multidisciplinary stations designed to nurture a diverse range of skills.

Students practiced their mathematics skills by predicting, counting and sorting items. They played dice games to build number sequences and constructed a snowman in “Roll-a-Snowman.” They also exercised their hand-eye coordination through an “ ice fishing” activity of matching the letters and numbers they hooked.

In an effort to “warm people’s hearts,” as a literacy lesson students wrote letters of appreciation and inspiration that were delivered to local community outreach organizations, including the Family Service League and local veterans hospitals. Applying their science knowledge, students examined the human heart by measuring their fists and comparing the ruler results to the size of heart diagrams.

Throughout the day students had the opportunity to examine aspects of the winter season and create corresponding projects.
