Marshmallow, Mittens and Snowmen

Oh my....  "It was the best day ever," according to my kiddos.  The day was full of fun activities and lots of learning going on.  First thing in the morning we completed all of our core tests.  Then, they recited their snowman poem, oral language grade.

The kiddos sorted mitten antonyms by table groups.  Each group had the same cards to match up.  When time was up, we talked about the cards that they didn't find a match for- problem solving  They were super smart.

They each got a mitten sheet.  I told each student a different word for their mittens, they came up with the antonym - decorate.  We will hang these in our room.

Small book, with antonyms.  They cut out the words and glued them in the blank.  They, also, completed some winter worksheets.

But, the best were these little darlings.  Our principal even stopped by to make her own.

We made hot chocolate and these snowmen.  I invited their 6th grade buddies to help them make them, pass out hot chocolate and just have fun.  Coolest day ever, plus I got some grades for my grade book.
