Yay for Snowmen!

We have had a great time this week reading and writing about snowmen!!

To start off our unit, I wanted to find out what they already knew about snowmen and what they look like! What better way to find out then to have them make one!  So, each child was given a baggie filled with various pieces that could be used to make a snowman.

The only instructions that were given were simply...make a snowman.  I think the hardest part of this for me was to keep my mouth shut when I was asked questions about how to do it!  The finished products made me smile and I still do when I look back at the pictures.  Each one is sooo different and unique.

Enjoy!

Not quite sure how this one ended up with 3 bodies??? Hmmm....

I don't think the creator of this one  ever saw the hat as a hat - it was a shirt to him when he took it out of the bag because he specifically pointed out the hat that he made! :) So cute!

I can't wait to show you what we turned these snowmen into!!  :)
