Monday was snow day in our classroom! My kids were pretty excited because we have yet to have any real “wintry” weather this year! Please note: Any Amazon links in this post are affiliate links.
We started out by reading the book “Snowmen at Christmas“– there is also “Snowmen at Night“. I love having my kids write short stories about what snowmen really do at night! I use it on my bulletin board every year!
In math we had ourselves a little review over measuring the nearest 1/2 inch. Most of my kids had forgotten how to use a ruler! So it was a good review! We ended by having a little snowball fight. My kids were so excited to toss the paper balls around the room– I may have even thrown a few myself 🙂 You can find that activity here in my store. I also have an activity called “Snow Much Measurement” if you’d rather work on measuring the 1/4 inch! My kids just weren’t ready for that yet!
Lastly, we worked on making some snowflakes using borax and hot water– the recipe is down below. Hope it’s useful!
