Cute name snowmen.

Snowball painting with wine corks. This went so well! Giving 18 kids paint all at the same time always terrifies me a little bit but it went great and the wine corks created perfectly formed snowballs :) They are my new favorite art supply...a friend of mine bought me a whole box full for Christmas.
More snowman fun! We did this cute Snowman Buttons book from Shannon Martin at Kindergarten Hoppenings. Then we made these snowmen with pom pom buttons and they wrote their own number sentences.
One of our favorite fun Friday activities is sight word 4 corners outside in the atrium. The kids love this game! And living in Florida, we can do this in January :)here.
More fun with Deedee's January Poetry Stations.
Some good old snowmen painting. I thought this guy turned out hilarious!!
Snowman brace map writing.
Some roll and write fun with counting on practice (grab these dice here).
Every year we read the book Snowballs by Lois Ehlert and then send the kids home with 3 paper plates to build and decorate a snowman with things they find around their house. I modified this a bit one afternoon when I had to sub for an after school art program last minute. I pulled out all kinds of random stuff from my art cabinet, cut some white die cut circles, and got these great little guys!
I ended up having to be out a few days last week and our penguin unit never really got off the ground which was SO sad and depressing to me. These guys really turned out great though. I love art projects where I just give them paper and say "Make me a ___" How funny is that guy in the middle??
I will be back later this week to share some space fun. Happy Monday everyone :)
