Here's a quick look at our week...
1. We hung up our Directed Draw Snowmen from our "Snow-tastic Snowmen Unit". Love these guys. They crack us up how each one of them has their own personality (much like the artists).
2. We started our "Polar Unit" (since it's a chilly 50 degrees in Cali we figured it's pretty much like The Arctic)!
3. This next one needs some explaining...
We were inspired by Teeny Tiny Teacher and First Grade Parade's idea of "Snowball Fight". We came up with our own version and wrote some numbers on plain papers and crumpled them up to create 'snowballs'. We allowed our students to
chuck them as hard as they could gently toss a snowball to a friend. The friend would open up the snowball and record what coins could be used to make that number.
We are also thinking about doing this with spelling words, number equations, etc.
The possibilities are endless! If you
are brave enough want to try
this in your class, grab the freebie below.
4. We also plugged our "Frosty in First Grade" activities into workshop and let them have at it.
