Winter Fun

It's been a while since I've posted. I think that I remember how...

Going through my camera roll to share things I forgot to share.

This was a fun (and unexpectedly difficult) name project we did in the fall. I think this was a Runde's Room inspiration, but correct me if I'm wrong. Give the kids a piece of paper with a large circle on it. They have to fill as much of the space as possible with their names. Color their names, and cut out the white space. Most of my students struggled with this. They couldn't understand why their letters had to touch and why they had to share lines to make their letters. Mine turned out awesome at least!


This was a fun craft that I found {here}.



Flashlight Friday is still popular.




This snow globe writing and craft activity was a from a combination of sources. The gist is a five-paragraph creative writing activity about how they got in the snow globe and their attempts to get out. We got a few ideas from watching the {Knick Knack Pixar short}. The kids were pretty creative! They chose a scene to recreate a snow globe, which included a picture of them, fake snow, and a clear plastic plate. This wasn't as messy as glitter (which is forbidden in my room), but I underestimated the static electricity-ness. (I did the snow and gluing part. Since the plate had ridges, I had to make sure that snow wasn't going to leak out.)
If you want to pick up this activity, I put it as a freebie {here}.
