Snow & Snowman Fun!

Last week we enjoy snow and snowman activities. Now, if we could only get some REAL snow, we'd have one super happy teacher! :)

We talked about the letter 'Ss', the sound it makes, and different words that start with the letter S. We had fun doing some button counting with snowman pictures, making letters with magnet pieces, playing with "snow" (shaving cream) at the sensory table, selling and buy ice cream in our ice cream shop, and the biggest hit...SNOWMAN BOWLING.

At this rate, we could be snowman bowling well into March! This week & next week we will be doing Penguins! This is the first time I have a done a penguin unit so I am looking forward to it!

Ms. Tammy is slowly starting to teach! YAY! She did calendar & greeting time on Friday and did a great job! She will take over calendar this week, and plan a large group activity for us! :) We can't wait to see what she has planned for us!

Check out the photos below for some of the fun things we did last week!

Almost a strike!

Marble run is still a hit!

Working hard to stack those pins!

Practicing fine motor skills with q-tip painting!

Making letters & recording them!

What fun we had in the "snow"!

Making a cotton ball snowman!

Working hard to put 1 cotton ball in each circle.

Miss Blecki's favorite...marshmallow snowmen!!

The kids did great with this! This is not a quick project! :)
Be sure to stop back in on Sunday *hopefully* to check out some new updated pictures! Please remember: NO SCHOOL ON WEDNESDAY JANUARY 25 & FRIDAY JANUARY 27!


  1. I just found your blog! I am a student teacher studying special ed. I am currently doing 5 weeks of student teaching in a special ed preschool. I LOVE it... but the one thing I've complained about (in my blog, not out loud)is that there is very little FUN in the classroom. It is super structured, but ALL of the activities are either cut-and-paste or file folder games, and the kids are just bored with them. I think there is so much more that can be done with these kids. From your blog, it seems to me that YOU are doing it! :D

  2. Oh wow!! Thank you!! I have another blog "Creating & Teaching" where I share a lot of ideas and downloads too! I will have to check out your blog and please feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions along the way of your student teaching experience!! I'd be happy to help whenever I can!!

    1. Thanks! Actually this is my last week in the classroom. We do five weeks of internship in one class and then ten weeks in another. I'll be student teaching in fourth grade by next week, if all goes well! However I have decided I would love to teach preschool special ed once I'm certified. I'm definitely going to keep following your blog so I can store up ideas! :D
