Wearing the Seasons...

Our first week back in January, we will be learning about the four seasons in science. We will focus on the colors you see, the changing landscape and changing temperature, and the types of clothing worn for each. For the remainder of the week we will be “Wearing the Seasons.” PLEASE do not go out and buy anything special for this, it’s just something fun we are doing to help students remember the changing colors we see as the seasons change. Below is the season for each day, and a list of suggested colors…


Wednesday—Fall—wear orange, yellow, brown

Thursday—Winter—wear white

Friday—Spring and Summer—wear green, yellow, red


If your child wants to get creative and wear a scarf on Thursday for winter and sunglasses on Friday for Summer, that’s fine! The more that they create their “seasonal outfits,” they more likely they are to remember it.


Thanks for your support at home!
