I'm a bit late with some of the activities we've been creating in my class. I've been forgetting to take pictures of all the wonderful activities my students have made. So today I made myself stop, before I left school, and take pictures of all the great work my students have been making. Here are a few.
Have I told you about The Jacket I Wear in the snow?
I usually read this book right after Christmas break. It helps me to teach my ELL students about the clothing we wear during the Winter months. It also ties into our Writing curriculum, because that is when we are covering pattern books. One of the activities I love having my students do is to label an image of themselves with all their Winter gear on. See below. It helps me to assess if they learned the names of their Winter clothes. I also have them trace the sentence "These are the clothes we wear in the snow."
Remember when I told you about Snowmen At Night? Here's how it turned out.
Here are pictures of my students New Years resolutions.
For my 2nd graders that I only see for Writing, I borrowed an idea from Deanna Jump's blog. I had my students write what their life would be like if they lived in a snow globe. It turned out really cute and they LOVED it. I may have to do more of these activities with them. I think they are starting to feel left out.
Finally, here is just some snowman fun we had. I got them from the member section of Thistle Girl.
My kiddos had a lot of fun with all these activities. Next week we will study MLK and I hope to get those pictures up soon. Until then stay warm.
