Winter Wonders

Onward!

Literacy Station Rotations
In the background, children are building a poem in the pocket chart and writing winter sentences at the table.
My friends on the red rug built that cozy spot
and chose the books for that area!
"My snowman melted!"
We talked about perspective before we worked on this activity.
I don't think everyone 'got it'!
Snowball Names
This activity makes me smile.
They look so happy, side by side.
Winter Trees~Art Lesson
Flexibility was required on my part:
blue paper was replaced by black when I
discovered a problem with the white paint.
Silver paint was abundant, thus the night scene!
We discussed the "Y" and "V" shapes in branches,
and the way that snow collects in the crook of a branch. 
Purple Sparkle Playdo
Love!

My son snapped this pic on a quick trip before he
headed back to college.
Someday....

    1. WOW! What a great song! Back in another century, I thought my destiny would include a microphone-- leading worship like that would be a dream job. :-) Thanks for sharing that with me.

  3. Looks like so much fun! I think I'll have to steal some of those winter ideas-we haven't done much art lately. I love the purple playdoh too-my little diva girls would flip out over that! :)

    1. I used the white glitter that looks like snow--found it at Wal-Mart! Most of my art projects are done in art class; I'm the art teacher, too, lol!
