LITERACY

SNOWMAN NAMES


Building snowman using letters of name.

SNOW GLOBE

Children complete the sentence, "If I lived in a snow globe I would..." then draw a picture in a blue construction paper circle.

SNOWBALL FIGHT

Another big hit- snowball fight!! I wrote our names, numbers, and color words on paper, wadded them up and then we all had a great time tossing "snowballs" at each other. When finished everyone took turns reading the snowballs for a sticker.

WRITING IN SNOW (aka shaving cream)

We wrote our names and drew pictures in "snow" (shaving cream).

ART

COFFEE FILTER SNOWFLAKES

We made snowflakes out of coffee filters. It was helpful for several of my students if I first drew lines and shapes on the folded coffee filter.

MITTENS

This is a project by the Fawn class - foam shaped mittens decorated with large sequins and cotton.

BUBBLE WRAP SNOW SCENE

First spread white paint on bubble wrap. Then color and cut out a snowman. Glue the snowman on your snow scene.

ESKIMOS

Children color their eskimo and glue some cotton balls around cuffs. Next glue a cupcake liner to head area and glue a picture of the child in the center. They turned out so cute. Get your free eskimo pattern here.

MATH


We graphed if we had ever built a snowman.


We graphed if we had ever thrown a real snowball.


Made snowflakes using tanagrams

SCIENCE

ICE BLOCK AND SALT

First we brainstormed what happens to water when put in the freezer - then we filled a 2 quart container with water. The next day we saw it became ice. We dropped food coloring on it and then rock salt. We watched how the rock salt melted the ice and as it did the food coloring flowed down inside the ice block. This was one of the best science experiments we have done all year. The kids loved everything about it and were sad when it had to be thrown out at the end of the day.

GAMES


We played "Melt the Ice" game - the kids loved it especially dropping their ice down their shirts.
