Snowmen - Post # 2 of many!

I just love this snowman project!
The snowmen are happy and enjoying the snowfall!
We read "Snowmen at Night" and the children had a lot of fun creating these snowmen.
We talked about fiction vs. nonfiction based on the book we read, why we can't see the snowmen's eyes, how they look upward and loving the snow falling down!
I gave each child a piece of black construction paper and made available lots of colorful pieces of construction paper.
The kids thought it was funny how the snowmen's noses are "hanging in the air!" and they had fun walking "like the snowmen with their noses pointing to the ceiling!" It takes so little for five and six year olds to have fun, doesn't it?
 Children made patterns on the snowmen's scarves using two different colors of construction paper. They used black markers to draw the smiles1
 For the snowflakes, my students used white paint and made "fingerprint snowflakes" around the snowman!
Check out my newest product focused on ELA/Literacy and Math concepts. These task cards that I created are all CCSS aligned and offer a fun and interactive way to practice and review important academic concepts.
