Happy New Year! It is hard to believe we are this far in our school year. I will be putting up a new bulletin board when I get back to school. I thought some of you would like to get a head start too. This is not a new idea for me, but for some reason I didn’t get a picture of the bulletin board from last year.
I will keep to a winter theme by having students make snowmen. We have a die cutter that cuts out snowmen. You could cut out 3 circles small, medium, and large, for the students to stack and make a snow man if you don’t have die cutter. Students can then use scrap paper to make props and clothes for them. Finally I had them make a sign for snowman to hold. This gives them a chance to formulate relative clauses using descriptive phrases. An example for a sentence would be. “I am a snowman who is wearing a striped scarf and black hat”. They get quite creative with this and can usually come up with several sentences that will apply. I have seen flying snowmen with wings and snowmen who look like football players.
This year I will make sure I take a picture of the bulletin board and post it.
