Winter Fun

 

What do families like to do in the winter? We have been exploring this question. There are many activities that happen only in the winter like building a snowman. In the coming weeks, students will be exploring their inquiry question that digs deeper into the seasons. There were many winter questions so we’ll start with those questions first.

Roll-A-Snowman

 

If you are having fun, is it work? Students enjoyed playing with numbers 1 to 6 during a dice game called ‘Roll-A-Snowman.’ Pairs of students cooperatively worked together to create a snowman based on the number that was rolled. There were lots of laughs and talk about numbers in our numeracy block today.

Exploring, Creating, Building

It is through exploration and creating that children have a chance to gather information about their world around them. During Choices, students showed this many different ways.

With the lights turned low, some students explored light and colour. They built structures made of coloured glass and wood. Using a flashlight, they projected the colours onto their hands, clothing and ceiling. They layered colours to see what it would create.

 

 

While other students created an arctic world out of sand, rocks and wooden pieces. They built a home for polar bears and penguins.

 

 

 

 

 

And others explored and built with different materials such as chairs, clips, sheets and jackets. They created a tunnel fort that curves like a rollercoaster.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And others are built homes, creating elaborate stories including moms, babies, sisters and aunties. They repurposed the dish clothes into diapers; the bench into a change table; and chair into a crib.

Snow Much Fun

 

Students loved the snow outside. They made up their own tag game using a star shape that was packed down in the snow. We don’t know who made the star but we respectfully enjoyed it.

Alpine Trees


Students choose the size of paper before painting a background. For the background, they used one colour then added more water to lighten the value of the blue. Once dried, they drew black alpine trees. So beautiful!

Symmetrical Snowflakes


Snowflakes are symmetrical. Students experimented cutting different shapes, sizes and number of cuts. Next, they opened up the paper snowflake to reveal their design.
