B here again. I hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween. I loved seeing my class in their costumes! They were just so cute.
Now that November is upon us, the mornings are cool and the afternoons are warm. One would ask, “How do I dress my child for this drastically changing weather?” In my classroom, layers seem to work best. A short sleeved shirt for in the classroom works great. With long sleeves and sweaters, we are constantly pushing their sleeves up for hand washing, art, meals and messy projects. For outside play, a light sweater and then their jacket keeps them warm and also allows for unrestricted movement. Big, puffy coats are great for playing in snow but are not easy for them to move around the playground.
We keep the classroom at a comfortably warm temperature but do not want the children to overheat from being dressed in a single thick sweater that is more appropriate for outdoors. So layer up your child all through fall and winter and don’t forget to label those extra layers (and the hat and mittens, too).
Keep warm (but not too warm!)
