We read Snowmen at Night, Snowmen at Work, Snowmen All Year, and Snowmen at Christmas by Caralyn Buehner. The students then picked which snowman theme they wanted to write their point of view from. Most of them picked a snowman at night and snowman at work. Some even added the snowman all year. After everyone finished their writing, we made snowman from paper that we had ripped up. (Ask your child why we had crumpled the paper up. It had nothing to do with snowmen. We talked about how after we crumple paper up we never can make it flat again. Then we talked about how even when we apologize, we can never really take back words or actions. How it is always important to think before we do or say something. Then because I am frugal, we have o do something with the paper we ruined. Even so I think it is an important message that needs to be said more than once.)
The second graders also got to read their writing at the K-4 assembly on Wednesday. The first graders will have a chance to read writing at the assembly later on in the year.
