Friday, I decided to bust out the messiest craft ever the last hour of school.  Why do I do this to myself?  My friend, Cherie (love you girl!!), and I always joke about how we try to do this elaborate craft or lesson in the most inopportune time…this was one of those moments.  But my thought process was I wanted to do a writing assignment about it on Monday after the snowflakes dried…anyway……

I bought some foam snowflakes at Michael’s and I had the kids use glue, sequins, and fake snow to decorate them.  I let them go wild with their creativity.  I had three students at a time come back to a table and decorate their snowflakes.

Here are the items I used:

Step 1:  Squeeze glue onto the snowflake and then smear around with a q-tip.

Step 2: Decorate with sequins and/or fake snow.

Step 3: Let them dry!

After the snowflakes dried, we wrote sentences about our decorations.  Our sight word this week is “have” so I encouraged them to use that word and describing words too!
