It’s not that it’s been a bad week, I’ve actually had an awesome week with my class, it’s just been wild, crazy… BUSY! Now I’m whipped!
Today was picture day, my students had earned a party because their compliment chain hit the floor, we had visitors from the board in our building, and I had a teaching student in my classroom in the afternoon. It was crazy but fun.
For our party today my students and I made 3D paper snowflakes. Ambitious, yes I know, but rewarding. My students honed their listening skills, discussed symmetry, patterning, and a bit of science about snowflakes, all while having a party… pretty good huh?
I made a pattern of my own but after I did that I found wikihow has a pattern and directions.
Check out 2 of my kiddos pretty pretty snowflakes 🙂 (My camera and I weren’t getting along so the other pics really didn’t come out…shame too cuz they were nice.)
Ooohh aaahh… Now I need some hot cocoa.
