Snowman- Snowman made of snow- What else do we know?

    Ms. Misty's Class learned about facts about a snowman this week- Did you know that a snowman is 80% air and just 20% water?  The students listed their favorite facts we discussed under a snowman they each made from recycled egg cartons. It was Snow much fun!!!

Penguin Bulletin Board

  We are learning about penguins in Ms. Kristy's class. The kids are having the best time.  Ms. Kristy made the penguin for the bulletin board from black, white and orange tissue paper. The class  wrote the things they already knew about penguins on one side and then add the things they learned through the week on the other, Great Idea!!!!! The penguin is made up of tissue paper cut in half and them stabled to the board. I got tissue paper crazy this year and it has really made for a good board.

Macaroni Snow Globes

Hi everyone - we are so glad to get back in the swing of things coming back from our Christmas  break-its always hard but this starts the second half of the year so we are hitting the ground running!!  - the kiddos were excited to be back and we always have to do a fun activity to get started off , the classes had a great time making a snow globe from macaroni.  Before we put the snowman on they sprinkled white glitter on the macaroni before the paint dried which made them sparkle-  
 this was SNOW much fun!!!!
