This week I did have us try out the melting snowman picture I found on pinterest. Here's how they turned out. The only thing I did for them was give them a blackline of the glasses, the rest is all first grade work.
I was very happy with how well the kids did with not a lot of direction from me.
We are having an inversion here. That means cold and polluted air is trapped in the valley. This is causing us to have inside recess every day. Ugh. I'm also suffering from sinus problems, as I usually do when it gets like this. I'm starting my weather unit this week, and it would be nice if we had something besides an inversion to learn about.
