Snowman Glyph

Do you wanna build a snowman???  (Sing along, I’m sure you know the tune)  I sang that line over and over during this project with my kiddos.

If you’ve never heard of a glyph before you’ve got to check this out.  This is a super cute snowman project, but the best part is that each one will look unique and different based on each child’s preferences.  snowman glyph pic

Each child will answer various questions about winter and class favorites.

Letter S – Shaving Cream Snowman

I love letter S.  So many things start with the splendid letter!  We just got TONS of snow making SNOW our key word for letter S.  We made these wonderfully PUFFY 3-D snowmen to celebrate.  3-D is all the rage, so why not add some to our art!  🙂

Mix 60ish% shaving cream (non gel kind, I prefer Barbasol) with 40ish% white glue and allow children to form 3 “blobs” on their paper. Allowing them to use their fingers adds extra squishy fun!  1 Dixie cup of the mixture per child was enough to make the example.  Let dry overnight.  It really does keep it’s “PUFFED UP” shape!  Give students markers, construction paper, pom pom balls, whatever you have around the house/classroom etc. to decorate their snowmen!  Enjoy!  Download the PDF version of the printable here.

Letter S Snowflake Graph

Snow, snow everywhere!  I just love this time of year.  I know some of you loathe snow, but being a California girl {for 25+ years}, I still find it fun to have Colorado snow in my new wonderful state!  To continue our graphing skills {money graphing, heart graphing}, this week we will be sorting snowflakes by size and then graphing our results.

I love allowing the kids to pick-up, move and manipulate the items they are graphing rather than counting items from a picture on a worksheet.  I always attempt to use REAL things they can touch to make it mean more.  You can get the snowflake graph here.

Letter S snake

We love making things out of alphabet letters.  It not only teaches the kids the names of the letters but also helps them identify the initial sound of the words.  For letter S we made a snake {surprise, surprise}.  Here’s the cute little guy we came up with.  Made with construction paper, paper straws, yarn and google eyes.  I just love the way his little tongue sticks out almost as if he’s hissing at you!
