I'm Back and Some Snowmen Fun!

Is anyone still out there? This poor blog has been just a little neglected the past few months as I've been adjusting to life with a newborn. I had great intentions of blogging more when I was out of school, but it didn't happen...I'm so sorry! However, I came back from maternity leave Monday (which by the way was one of the hardest things I've ever done!) and we are back in the swing of things in Mrs. Plant's room.
This week we've been doing lots of fun snowmen activities and the kids are loving it. Here are a few things we've done (most of these activities can be found in my friend Deeanna's unit here):

We read Snowmen At Night then wrote about what our snowmen would do at night. We made these cute snowmen to look like what our snowman would look like the next morning :)



 We also read The Biggest Snowman Ever and used it to discuss how the snowmen were different sizes. Then, we painted our own snowmen and measured them with unifex cubes.
{This idea came from Julie Lee...you can see her original post here. She has some great ideas!}
We also used our big snowman to practice comparing height. We each stood beside him to see if we were taller, shorter, or the same size. Then, we practiced drawing snowmen that were shorter, taller, and the same size as ours.


We also read There Was A Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow and practiced sequencing again.
We also did an individual sequencing activity, but I forgot to take a picture! You can get this activity in my sequencing pack here.

Sorry for the randomness...hopefully I'll be back in a somewhat regular groove soon! I'm also working on this and hope to have it posted this weekend...

Here are a two of the centers I tested on my kids this week:

That's it friends...hope you have a great Friday!

  8. Welcome back! And you're right... going back after having a little one IS one of the hardest things you'll ever do!! Quick question, do you mind sharing how you add the text to the bottom of your photos?

    1. Hey Karen...
      It's getting a little easier, but I am always anxious to get home in the afternoon!
      I'm terrible at explaining things, but Jenn has a tutorial on her blog here:

      Let me know if it doesn't work :)
