Snowflakes and Tongues

While it seems the rest of the educational world has gotten at least one snow day this year, I have yet to get mine.  (Did I tell you about the day last winter when every district in the valley had a snow day but mine?  The news channels even showed up to do interviews.  Sigh.)  At least we're making the best of it.  We recently drew ourselves catching snowflakes on our tongues.  I'd pinned the idea a long while back, but this was my first experience with the project.  I really love how they turned out.  If you decide to try this out, which you definitely should, please visit Artisan des Arts to see how this teacher's third graders created the original idea.  They did a beautiful job.

  1. These are wonderful. I love seeing the whole classes work together with this type of project. And as far as snow days…we had yet another one today. I am so sick of them:)

  3. They did such a great job! We were excited about our 2 snow days, until we found out when we are going to make them up. :( So, you may be lucky in that respect. We did get flurries here a few years ago and I took the kids outside to see it (rare in Texas)-it's one of my favorite pics, they all had their mouths open trying to catch some! :)

    1. Lori, you should definitely do them. (With all your snow days, I can see why you haven't found the time.) :)
