Inside Recess and Sock Snowmen

As you might imagine, today was an inside recess day.  With that in mind, we wanted to come up with something fun and different to do during our recess time.  Mrs. Kurt pulled out a large roll of white paper and cut a large piece for each table.  Each table was given a piece of paper and we all had to work together to decorate it.  We could use pencils, crayons or markers.  We could come up with a theme or idea or we could each do our own thing.

It was amazing...we all worked together and got along with each other so well.  It was great to hear kids using strategies for solving problems while they worked on the project.  And, best of all, we had FUN!

This afternoon we made a sock snowman.  However, since this project was a little tricky, we enlisted the help of Mr. Nylin's Third Grade class.  We used a tube sock, a roll of toilet tissue, a styrofoam ball, a pom pom, felt and ribbon.  It was so much fun and we were so glad to have the third graders to help us out.

We will bring our snowman home in a couple of days.  For now, they are decorating the office and the library.
