Here is what our week looked like Monday We decomposed numbers into cute snowmen. We compared our name to the word 'snowman' by adding vowels and consonants and comparing the number of letters in both names. We read the adorable story 'The Snow Globe Family' and began our story map.
We did a story focus on 'The Snow Globe Family' and wrote about the characters and setting. We made our names into snowmen! Then, we sorted our snowmen names by the number of letters. Tuesday We started the day practicing our vertical addition.
We started to learned about missing addends and how to find the missing addend using a ten frame. Then, we got to practice finding the missing addend on our 'dry erase boards' aka paper protectors. I use ALL the time! We talked about what we would do if we lived in a snow globe.
I loved their responses! We began our writing on what we would do if we lived in a snow globe. I snapped this picture real quick. I am so impressed and got a good laugh!! I would make a really big snow ball and I would throw it at the flaw for I can get out.

We discussed some events that the little family did in the snow globe and then drew pictures of the different events in our story focus books.
We also wrote about our favorite part of the story in our story focus books. We added shredded paper to look like snow.

I provided the circles and had scrap paper out for my students to make the rest of their snowman after the paint dried. They did better than I would have ever done! We used these snowmen to begin our descriptive writing.
