### Snowmen fun

Today was my first day back with kiddos and WOW am I tired!! I forgot how exhausting the first day back from a break is. My kids were great...loud, but great haha. We started off with some fun snowmen activities. I introduced the new theme by using one of the poems from Deedee's great pack.

I forgot to snap a picture of the poem in action but my kids had so much fun with each line trying to guess the rhyme and watching the snowman come to shape. Seriously these poetry packs are awesome!

Here's some other fun things we did today.

We talked about what we wanted to learn to do this year. These two were "sleep with out my daddy" and "count to 100". I also really enjoyed "ride a motorcycle" and "do more math like 100+100=200" haha precious :)

We are reviewing all the ways to represent numbers 6-10 in an effort to move them from the visual representations to the more abstract 5+2 is 7. Today we did this fun snowman sort whole group and then as a math activity.
You can grab this activity from google docs here :)

5. These are great! Would you consider making some with larger numbers (up to 20) for first grade? I think this would be fun for my kiddos in a center.
