I told the kids ahead of time to come dressed for the snow!
Tuesday, January 28, Stuck in a Snow Globe writing Well, this is the first month in my teaching career that I have had more days off than working.
This weather is getting a little cOLD! And these storms have creeped up on us without too much of a warning! We were checking out the local major riverthat is ice jammed.
So, this was a project that took us a few weeks to complete, but not because it was a long project Students drew a winter scene insideNOT drawing themselves. While they were doing this, I had them get on their jackets, hats, scarves, etc. They were either super excited with hands in the air or they were freezing, hugging themselves.
They got to choose. I printed the pictures 5X7 size. Kids cut and glued actually, I had to save time. I cut them out, they glued. I laminated the pictures. Then the students wrote. So, the kids wrote a "first, next, then and last" narrative CCSS aligned! We talked about having one of the "steps" be that the globe got all shook up and it might have messed up a snowman they were building, etc.
Of course, some of my babes "missed" that info and just wrote about the fun things they did while they were in thereand that was okay, because we had days in between these steps.
While they were writing their final copies, I got the globes all snowy and glued. I took a few pics while doing it, to show you what I found to be helpful. I bought 10 bags, not knowing what I would need I only needed ONE bag for my 19 kids.
Start a little hot glue on one of the sides and place the plate down. Jam the glue gun underneath the plate and squirt awayaround the plate, making sure the BOTTOM of the plate is "hole-free" and secure!
