When we stopped counting, each little learner dumped out their snowballs, lined them up, and then counted them.
Lining them up and making sure to touch each one while saying the number helped them with one to one correspondence.
The next day in my small groups, we completed this cut and glue student sheet to reinforce what they learned the day before.
Who knew so much could be learned with snowballs? ;)
4.I filled our sensory table with Insta-Snow and added cups, bowls, spoons, and arctic animals. This is the most requested activity in the room! They love playing in the snow. Little do they know how great pouring, dumping, and scooping are for their motor development. Plus, there is the added benefit of working on language skills, social development, and intellectual development by fostering imaginative play. :)
We have also done some super fun painting with ice. Also a great fine motor, creative activity!
Besides the book "Snowballs", we have been reading LOTS of other snow themed books. We did this student comprehension sheet after reading "Snowmen at Night". It's from this pack.
It's available HERE.
The other pack used in this post is available HERE.
