Making the most of snow days!

Our district has had 7 snow/ice days in the past month and a half. This is very rare in Georgia. The last time we had snow/ice days was 2010. Naturally the students came back to school very excited. Both times students returned to school on a Friday. We rolled our lesson plans to the next week and filled those two Fridays with snow related lessons. We gave each student a large piece of blue construction paper, a sheet of notebook paper and a piece of chalk. Students drew a snow picture with the chalk and then wrote about their picture. The other assignment was for them to make a "name snowman." They had to put each letter of their name on a white circle and glue it onto the paper and decorate. This assignment didn't cover any of our standards, but it was fun and allowed the students to show their creativity.
