We read the book Snowballs by Lois Ehlert, and then decided to have a go at making our own snowmen out of found objects and scraps that were destined for the garbage or recycling. Then (to add a literacy component) we tried (and are still trying) to come up with 100 words for snow. 100 words that describe snow. We have about 40 so far!
It was almost a snow day today :) Snow was falling -- and piling up to more snow than we've had in a few years. It was so exciting. Only about half of our class was at school today, so we had a pretty layed back day. We went out early for recess and I tried to get everyone to make snow angels. Most declined :) So I had to show them what to do! They all warned me that you shouldn't make snow angels without snow pants on! I just got a little wet -- but I didn't complain.
Have a happy snow weekend! Go out and play in the snow -- go ice skating, tobogganing or just make some snow angels!
