We only had a four day week because Monday was a teacher work day. The kids were so excited to be back and we had lots of fun with snowmen. I kept forgetting to take my camera to school. GRRRRR! I get so aggravated when I do that! Here are some of the things we did that I took a picture of.
We read the book from my Snowman unit and circled the popcorn words and looked for chunks in words.
We read the story, Snowmen All Year and did a directed drawing and painted snowmen. Then, we wrote about the adventures we would have with our snowman if he stayed all year.
Before we began the drawing I folded the 12×18 construction paper to help them determine how big to draw each part. The top section is the smallest part (hat) and the bottom section is the largest.
I had them draw the snowmen step by step with a black crayon.
We read the book, The Snowglobe Family and made snowglobes and wrote about living in a snowglobe.
This one says, If I lived in a snowglobe I would have a snowball fight.
This one says, If I lived in a snowglobe I would live with a penguin.
This is one of the pages from our How to Build a Snowman book.
