Snowpants, Boots, Hats...Oh My!

It's that time of year again when the weather is cold and snowy and our classroom is littered with snowpants, boots, hats, and mittens. With 25 children in the room it can get a little busy at times!  We have been working with children to remember a specific sequence of steps for when they dress themselves for outdoor play time. We are hoping that this sequence will encourage them to dress independently and successfully. After reviewing the steps with the children we posted an anchor chart on the wall as a reminder. We use the same language for the steps as we do when retelling a story.

The steps are:

First snowpants.

Next boots.

Then jacket.

Then hat.

Then scarf.

Finally mittens.

The children are working hard to keep track of their personal belongings and dress themselves.

And it's always so refreshing to see them helping each other!
