With the warmer temperatures last week, the students spent a lot of time a recess constructing this snow fort. Their excitement at working together on this carried over into our classroom. It was destroyed over the weekend, but I regularly overhear plans to rebuild it. It was a great class project.
Because we had a LOT of snow last night, the buses did not run today. Very few students showed up at school, so we threw our original plans out in the snow.
First, because it was Friday,we all read by flashlight.
We also drew some pictures of what we saw out the window and then mixed up some shaving cream and glue to use as the snow.
This is what one of the pictures looked like when we were finished.
