This year our first and second grades will be having another Snow Day... back by popular demand. In the week before, the kids help by cutting lots of snowflakes and we hang them throughout the hallways with white crepe paper from the ceilings. We have a fake fire place going, and the kids wear their pj's. We do everything you would do on a real snow day. The first part of th eday, we rotate between teachers, listening to snow stories. We also make huge snowmen with materials from home like in Ehlert's Snowballs. The kids spread out, share their supplies, and make a huge mess!
Pretend SNOW DAY!
We have a fake snowball fight in the gym with white puff balls. We curl up and read around the room. We decorate cookies and drink hot cocoa and watch Raymond Brigg's THe Snowman. We paint with pastel colors on black mural paper, showing what "snowmen do at night" Pretty much anything goes, but the key is that it's low key and RELAXING!!
Anyone have any ideas to add??
I've attached the letter I send home informing them of the Snow Day and also to bring materials for the snowman project.
