Primary Chalkboard: There's Snow Business like Snow Business!

There's Snow Business like Snow Business!

For me, today is 'Back to School Eve'!  I don't know about you guys, but...this break was so relaxing and fun!  I had a real blast! :)  I really miss my kiddos...but...R&R?  You can NEVER have too much of that, you know?

So...what's a Florida blogger like me know about snow?
Ha ha!
Quite a bit, actually!  I grew up in New Jersey and had plenty of it in the winters! :)
Even though I'm not snow bound during the winters any more...I still like a snowy center or two in the winter! :)

Right before the break, I made some really cute melted snowman ornaments with my kids!

We had a blast making these together. Explicit instructions for this can be found HERE.
Thanks Marie for sharing the idea with me! :)

Before we left on the break, the students and I were working on non-standard measurement.
We used pop-cubes to create a winter scene with snowmen.
I graded them on a rubric. We turned it into a Christmas Dinner Placemat!
Check it out!

I made two different freebies recently for my word work stations.  One for nouns and one for adjectives.

If you'd like this freebie for your class, please click HERE.
If you would like the nouns freebie, that one is on my blog.

You can click HERE for that! :)

Latoya from Flying into First has a brand new winter writing freebie that has TONS of 'snow' words in it! :)
If you'd like to download this for your 'snow-stash' HERE!

Hope you have a wonderful first week back with your kids! :)

  4. Wow! Freebies through the FB Hop yesterday and now through this blog today! I am exhausted and exhilarated! To top off all of the excitement, a snow day has already been called for my district because of the wild, wickedly cold, and snowy weather here so I will be able to get lots of things printed, laminated, and ready to use! Thanks a million!

  5. YAY!! I'm glad you liked the ornaments! Love those SNOW packets too. I can't wait to use them in my class!

  6. Love the ornaments! So cute! I am definitely putting that blog post aside for next year.

    Have a great first day back!
