Snowman Soup, The Mitten FREEBIES, and Snowflake Art!

Good Morning, Friends! Kerri here (again)...
Lindsay is busy caring for her sicky baby (stomach flu-YUCK!) so you get another Wintery type post from me again! 

I spent the better part of this weekend cutting out my Snowman Soup Centers so my kidlets can have all kinds of Snowman Soup fun this week. Here is a sneak peek of what we'll be doing...

MATH CENTERS
Snowman Soup! Bar Graph

Snowman Spinners! Addition and Subtraction 
Frosty Fact Families

Polar Brrr! Turn Around 10's

Blowing Blizzard! Number Match

LANGUAGE ARTS CENTERS
An Avalanche of Antonyms
Wintery Friends! Long Vowel Sort

Snow Day! ABC Order

Hot Cocoa! Write the Room

Chocolatey Compound Words

Whew! That's alot of Wintery goodness! I cannot wait to bust these out during centers this week. I just know my kidlets are going to love them!

Last week, we read The Mitten as part of our Jan Brett Authors Study and I decided to make a little "Mitten Spin and Tally Math Center" to give them some practice with tally marks. I thought I would share it with you, since my kids had so much fun using it! Click on the picture below to access it via Google Docs. :)

Finally, here's a fun little snowflake art project that we will be doing this week from the TLC Winter Art book...

Simple and so pretty! 3 turquoise strips of paper, die cut shapes, or the kids can cut their own (that's what my kids did) and then glitter, which makes all the difference! We are going to write a poem to go with it, and VOILA! A Winter wonderland in our room!!

Have a great Sunday, friends!!
XOXO Kerri B

Hi Kerri,

I am just like the kids when it comes to glitter. LOVE it! I love the touch of adding glitter to the snowflakes. Thanks for sharing your ideas.
