We have spent the last few days reading winter stories, doing winter worksheets, projects and learning a bit, too.
We made a real crystal snowflake using these instructions.
We read the Ukranian Folktale, The Mitten in this little book we found on the Enchanted Learning website.
We colored a mitten and animals found on the website, too so that we could act out the story ourselves.
I turned our Math-U-See workbook into Winter math with some snowflake stamps. We really like Math-U-See. The math worksheets I found online were simply math problems with snowflakes on the page. This just seemed more fun.
We've done crossword puzzles, played Tic-Tac-Snow, found our way through a maze, a picture hunt, we read The Snowy Day and this activity to go with it. We read Winter Waits and It's Winter. And who doesn't love to color a winter picture?!
We are turning this exploration into a lapbook. I'll be sure to share the photos once we're done.
Happy Winter everyone!
