Winter Reading

When Christmas break is over - tomorrow :-(  I will begin my snow and snowman unit.  I always read the common snowmen books, the mitten, the hat, etc.  So I thought I would share with all of you two different books that maybe some of you might not know about.  The first is . . .

This is a wonderful book about what to do after Chrsitmas with your used up Christmas tree.  You can follow the reading with a craft of making bird feeders (pine cones rolled in peanut butter and seeds) for the kiddos to take home.

My next book which I will also read tomorrow is . . .

I follow the reading of this book with a math/craft idea to creat our bulletin board for out in the hall.  We make pattern block snowflakes and use interactive writing to make the title for our work!  I will post a picture tomorrow of the finished bulletin board.
