We read a few winter books and discussed what the illustrator showed outside the window. We created a snow scene using white chalk (which they loved!) and then glued the blue paper onto black paper and added the "window bars"!
We have read lots of snowmen books because it can be more than a year for our littles kinders to see snow sometimes! We want them to know what a snowman is.
We read There Was A Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow and we listed what she swallowed to create the snowman. We made a snowman salad with the whole class choosing which part to make. Some of the fast finishers tore the salad paper and wrote the list of ingredients.
Mrs. Voss and the other teachers on our team also made a snowman using the letters in each child's name to build a snowman. If your name was long, your snowman was tall. If your name was short, your snowman was short.
This was the favorite! They had to use their pincher fingers to pick up the pompoms with tweezers and put them in the suction cups. The little ducks were bathtub stickies that we turned face down so we could use the sticky cups!
