I spent the morning with an incredible group of (almost 30!) second graders, creating winter scenes.
In preparation for their scenes--and for poetry writing--we brainstormed nouns, verbs, and adjectives that they might find in a book with the subject of "winter." They came up with fabulous lists.
I am tickled with how these turned out. On another day, they'll complete poems to go on the back of each winter scene. Here are a few to share...
|Wisemen, angel, Mary & Joseph|
|Notice the "naughty" list?|
|Love the reindeer.|
|Wreaths on the fence are a nice touch.|
|So much detail. Love the colored birds.|
|Now THAT is an angel! (And what a Rudolph!)|
|Check out the Grinch!|
|Frozen comes to life! The kids started singing spontaneous carols--and the Frozen tunes--while they worked!|
|Tree is all decorated.|
|Angel AND Santa!|
Displays for a class of 30 kids takes up a lot of counter space! :)
