Following the winter theme, we made these pinterest inspired snowmen. I usually have the kids paint snowmen and I cut them out and put them up. But I've done that every year for about 12 years. This was really fun for a change. I had the kids write descriptions of their snowmen using adjectives we brainstormed (gotta get in those academics, don't we?) Thanks to whoever thought this up.
This week we also read Me on the Map, the anthology story in our Houghton Mifflin book. This is how we started.
I also read The Colors of Us and we started a big painting project based on that book. We'll finish tomorrow and I'll post photos over the weekend. I haven't done that in years either since we don't have fifth grade buddies anymore. But this class is awesome and we did it whole class today. More to follow.... Hope your having a great week too!
