It is beginning to get cold in Quebec and we are all hoping for some snow. The weatherman says we could get a snowstorm tonight. In anticipation of what is coming we painted some snowmen last week. Each child made a template by cutting out 3 circles from card stock. Then we used cut up pieces of sponge to sponge paint a white snowman. We left that to dry and on another day we decorated our snowmen with color – hat, buttons, face, etc. It was lots of fun. We used acrylic paint on construction paper.
What activity do you like to do in the snow?
Here is a fun activity to practice vowel sounds and help with reading. It is called Starfall. You can click on the picture below to go to the website. Check out each of the sites but the vowel site is the second one. Click on Learn to Read for vowel practice.
We have reading buddies with Ms. Vasilious’ Grade 6 each week. Last week we used laptops so Grade 1 could go on Starfall and practice vowel sounds. It was fun for all.
