After having 2 days off from the snow and cold we came back and did a huge writing project and wrote about their own snow day. They worked hard to put in the story elements of Who? Where? When? What? and How? into their story. We also did a story map together and made a class story to model the writing process of having a beginning, middle, and end to their story. They did a very nice job and continue to get better each time we write. These stories are hanging outside our classroom. Come by and read them!
We also read a lot of snow stories but a favorite that has been around a very long time is My Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. We then made some snow friends to hang out with our stories. They were really cute!
To go along with our snow theme we made these “snowflakes” and torn snowmen. They were very creative and it got it us ready for the snow!
