Snow Day!

On Friday, A4b had their first indoor snow day! In Chicago we often have cold weather, however we have nearly broken a record for lack of snow.  It has been 325 days since we have had 1 inch of snow. Remembering the amazing post Tara from Fourth Grade Frolics wrote about her snow day in Florida I thought why not!

Here is how our day went.

Using the ingredients for Mixed-Up Snowman Snacks I found at Gourmet Mom on-the-go the girls created snowman scenes.

Using these ingredients...

A4b created this!

After both creating and eating our Mixed-Up Snowman the girls moved onto creating with homemade clay. Using a recipe found at Spoonful.com the girls had a blast making everything they could think of.

Snowmen and Igloos!

Create your best Mrs. Cat!
(Mrs. Cat is my lovely little grey kitty.)

We ended our morning by making snowmen! Since there is no snow to be found we used newspapers.

Newspaper Snowman!

The girls had a blast.  Thank you Tara for such a great idea.  I will definitely make this a tradition.

January Currently

I am linking up with Farley's Currently for the first time!  I love reading about what all of you have been doing and have decided to get in on the fun.  That being said I really do need to get grading the historical fiction book reports the girls turned in on December 7 and the animal power points they completed right before break.  Wish me luck! 

I guess that is why I chose the word perspective as my OLW.  Will it really matter if all the power points or the hisorical fiction books reports are graded before Monday?  Not really, but I will do my best.
