Let it Snow!

Well...maybe not.  We have had very little snow this winter - really nothing more than a dusting (and I'm not too upset about it - snow pants, boots, etc. UGH!).  But, it's only January!  This week we have read several snow themed books, and have done a number of "snowy" crafts.  Here are some pictures of the snow storm inside our Kinder classroom.

Snow globes!  The kids designed their own snowmen.  I think they turned out really cute.

Our hallway bulletin board.  I left the Christmas lights on for added sparkle.  We made the snowflakes today - it really did look as if a snow storm had hit our room!  I set the timer for five minutes and told them to start shoveling!  I did not want our custodian to walk in and find that mess.  (The room looked pretty good when we left!)
A snowman should not...  We read Sneezy the Snowman and then did this fun project from Deanna Jump's cute TpT activity set.

These cute snowmen are also from Deanna Jump's cute TpT activity set.
In this activity, students spin to complete a graph.  Whichever hat gets the most spins "wins," and a sun or snowflake determines whether or not Sneezy is frosty or melted.  I projected the spinner onto my white board and used a magnetic spinner for a whole class activity.  My daughter, also a kindergarten teacher, had her Kinders work in small groups - which resulted in some melty & some frosty snowmen.  Either way, the kids loved this activity!


  1. Your bulletin board came out so cute! Their writing is wonderful too :)

  2. Thanks! We had lots of fun with snowmen last week. I am always amazed by how well my Kinders write. By the end of he year they are writing several sentences about a topic!

    Thanks for visiting (and following!)
