We came back to school on Friday of this week after a major snowstorm and three snow days. The boys and girls brainstormed all of the things they did during their snow days. We sorted our ideas by names of things (nouns) and words that told what we did (verbs). The students used this word bank on the SMART Board to write about their snow day activities. Everyone also created a snow picture to display with their writing. We tore white construction paper to make the snow covering the ground and then drew details with our crayons. Finally, they used white paint to show how the snow covered everything. Look for their writing on our website next week.
