Tuesday, January 28, Stuck in a Snow Globe writing Well, this is the first month in my teaching career that I have had more days off than working. This weather is getting a little cOLD!
Primary Punch Thank You Pinterest! I've had a lot of questions about how I assembled these projects. So, here's how I did it, in case you were curious. My kids wrote their imaginary writing piece and I glued it to the bottom of large construction paper.
I explained the concept to my kids and took their picture. I explained that they may want to act like they want out of the snow globe or like they are enjoying the snow. They cut themselves out after I printed the pictures on photo paper.
Then I traced a faint circle in pencil that the was same size at the clear, plastic bowls that I bought for the project. I modeled how to draw a snowy scene. They glued themselves into the circle and drew a wintery scene inside the circle I drew around their picture.
I laminated the paper after they drew the scene and glued themselves into the circle. Next, I put a handful of epsom salt in the middle of the circle.
Then, I drew a medium-sized line of hot glue all the way around the edge of the plastic bowl and stuck it to the laminated paper. I turned the paper right side up to make sure no salt came out and ta-da!
The project was complete! I hope that helps clear up any assembly confusion. Good Luck and Happy Crafting! I have found the cutest writing activities thanks to Pinterest, well I guess I should say thank you to the awesome teachers who came up with the idea and THEN posted them to Pinterest for me to find!
This first snowy activity was found by one of my second grade teammates on Tori's Teacher Tips through Pinterest. I used bowls instead of plates because the plates were twice as much and I used Epsom salt for the fake snow.
I highly recommend them, they were easy and my kids loved it. Plus, their writing was really cute too! I explained that they had to pose like they were cold or really stuck in a snow globe when we took their pictures and this is what they came up with Let's zoom in on one of my favorite poses Ahhh, they are just so cute!
