Snowpal Kits


Each year, before winter break I like to give my students a small gift, usually something to do away from school.  This year I couldn't find the right thing to buy but after digging through my arts and crafts supplies I came up with snowpal kits!  I cut snowpal shapes out of compressed felt and used fabric scraps to cut out 2 different shaped hats and scarves, added different buttons, pasta pieces, etc and put all the pieces in a baggie with a little poem I wrote.  Viola!  A fun and somewhat simple gift with things I had on hand!

Word family games for -ice and -ed

Here is a fun way to help kids create -ice word family word.  I wrote -ice on an ice scraper and the kids change the beginning sound to make a new word and then write that word.  I used jumbo magnetic letters.

Here is a fun way to help kids create -ed word family word.  I wrote -ed on an small wooden sled and the kids change the beginning sound to make a new word and then write that word.  I used jumbo magnetic letters.
