Linking up with Doodle Bugs today for Five for Friday!
Up here in the Northeast where I live, we haven't had many snow days at all. So I was really glad this week when we finally got 2 because my husband just got out of the hospital for a nose surgery gone wrong. So at least I didn't have to take as many days off as I was going to if it were not for the snow days. In the pics above are my son and daughter. Now that my son's 12, he gets to do all the manly stuff for me..like shovel and clean the car off. Love him! And my 11 year old daughter entertains herself by building snowmen. After this pic, she created a little snowman family, with snow children and a snow baby in the mama's hands.
I got to do my favorite bulletin board of the year - Angry Verbs! I did one last year, but it looked very different. Then, each kid had their own piece of paper with their own bird and their three pigs right next to the bird. This time I had them do the same work, except I created a scene. I'm going to do a separate post about this later with more details and some templates, but to sum it up, they got to practice past, present, and future tense verbs.
I just love this snowman melted writing and craft. We have been doing so many snowman writing and craft activities - Snowmen at Night, Disguise a Snowman, and now this. I thought this was a fun follow up to Disguise a Snowman because before they had to write about how they would protect their creation, but now they had to write about their experience of their snowman melting. Students got a graphic organizer to brainstorm thoughts about how they built their snowman, where they built it, what it looked like, what happened to it to make it melt, what it looked like when it melted, and what they learned for next time. Then they wrote out the story and created this cute craft against scrapbook paper. This activity pack is in my TPT store and you can find it HERE.
We've been practicing weathering and erosion concepts. Students started learning about the rock cycle and we are going to make the paper plate rock cycle craft above next week. This week they made flip booklets for weathering and erosion, and types of rocks. These flip booklets can be found in my Weathering, Erosion, and Rocks activity pack, along with interactive notebook pages, comprehension passages, posters, and more by clicking on the next picture.
Someone's got Beiber Fever. That's all I have to say about that.
