This week we finish up our unit on weather and seasons. We also continued our study on tall tales and we read a story called Snow Globe Family. One of our reading skills we have been learning is how to visualize parts of the story or make mind movies. So I read part of the story to them without showing them the pictures first. Then we came up with the things we visualized in a class list.
We then created our own snow globes and wrote about what we would do if we lived in a snow globe. We hung up our drawings and writing in the classroom.
To celebrate our first snow in Shaktoolik we read the book called Snowballs and learned about different types of snow people you can make. We then got together as a class an and discussed what are the steps to making a snowman. Kindergarten and 1st grade wrote their own directions as 1st grade continues to learn about Expository Writing. Student’s also got to paint their snowman after they were done writing their directions.
