Despite the 70 ish degree weather we've had the past few days here in the south, my sweeties at school have been having lots of fun learning about winter.
We made these cute snowmen crafts and then used adjectives to fill in the blanks and describe our snowmen. I love how different each one looks despite everyone being given the same materials (with the exception of the colors of the earmuffs and scarves). I started by making a large version of the snowman. We then labeled the different parts on the big snowman and talked about how we can use labels from pictures to help us spell words we may not know when we write. I wrote a story about my snowman and we made lists of different adjectives we could use to describe our snowmen. Then each student filled in their own "Do You 'Snow' Who I Am?" writing page.
Here are a few of our winter themed centers we've been working on during our morning literacy centers.

At this center I wrote our popcorn words for the week on ping pong balls and they scooped out a "snowball" and wrote the word on the recording sheet.
At this center they turn a card over, read the word on the hat, find the word on the recording sheet and color it in thhe corresponding color.
