Then, we wrote "How to Build a Snowman." This was harder than I had expected since usually we've had a little snow by this time of year. The kids were having trouble drawing on their own experiences to think about building a snowman. But, we referred back to the book and got our writing done. Then, we glued the How To's to construction paper and decorated the other side to make our very own snow people. I love the way they turned out!
Make a little ball. Make a medium snowball. Make a big snowball. Add: eyes, nose, mouth.
We also worked on our "The Snowman" books. (This also helped give the kids How To ideas.) Most of the class worked on a new sight word "has":
Some students worked on stretching out words....
And two of my sweeties reviewed the word "the"
Now if only we could get some real snow!
