We read books like "The Magical Snowman", "Hibernation Station" and "The Snowy Day." Because our overall theme for the month was RESPONSIBILITY we also read "I am responsible", "All by Myself", "It's milking time", "When I grow up", "Just a Mess" and "I was so mad".
Next we left the cold of earth behind and had a unit on the "Solar System". We made a mobile of the planets, reviewed the letters P for planets, S for Solar System, A for Astronaut and M for Moon. We traveled with Mrs. Frizzle on the Magic School Bus to our solar system, painted pictures of the sun and sang songs like "Zoom, zoom, zoom, We're going to the moon (repeat) If you'd like to take a trip, climb aboard my rocket ship, zoom, zoom, zoom" sung to Three Blind Mice. We also learned the "Responsibility" song. Lyrics are "Come on do what you're supposed to do, responsibility is following through" (repeat twice). We found this on Youtube.
