My first graders are dynamite in creativity. This week we decided to talk about snowmen and how other states have snow! Arizona kinda lacks in the snow department. The students were able to discover that cool colors remind them of being that is where we started!

After layering cool colors in the background the students created their snowmen. It was very neat to see the colors blend together!

While those were drying, we created descriptions of our snowmen. I let the students write whatever they felt like. I was amazed at how descriptively some of them wrote!

Easy peasy...glue the paper down and viola!

100th day activities

We did two different activities for our 100th day! The first was "100 years from now" writing prompt. The kids were so creative! They thought of how they would look and what they would be doing.

Our second activity was taking the number 100 and transforming it into a different picture. The kids needed some help on this one, but overall they did a fantastic job being creative once again!
