Winter Wonderland

Winter has blown through our rooms in Malibu and we are hoping that all of our snowmen don’t melt in this unusually warm weather.  We feel for all of you who are having to endure the cold and all of those snow days. 

We have been trying to get back into the routine, but it is always challenging after the two week break.  Winter is our theme and we have been busy!

These adorable math snowmen were so much fun to make, and the students practiced their writing and math skills at the same time.  We gave them a writing template to follow and emphasized correct letter formation and punctuation. 

After writing their word problems they each made a snowman and then added the snowflakes to solve the problem.  We found this great stamp set at Target for $1.29. What a great dealright?! The snowflake stamps were a perfect addition for this project and it sure meant less work for us in cutting out paper ones!

If you like this project it is available at our TPT store for only $3.50.  It comes with practice word problems and snowflake manipulatives!
