Let it snow . . . let it snow . . . let it snow . . .
If you live in an area of the country that gets snow in the winter, sometimes you get tired of seeing it. I know by February, I’m ready for spring! But one thing that makes the snow worth it all is one of my favorite winter books, The Snowy Day, by Ezra Jack Keats.
Even if you live in an area of the world that gets little or no snow, you can turn your home into a winter wonderland! Come and meet Monica, from Family Fun Notebook. Last winter Monica created a “snow’ activity jar, allowing her boys to pick a fun activity out of the jar each day. They made paper snowflakes, a sticky snowflake collage, “cotton” snow, and enjoyed many other creative snow-themed activities. You can read more about all of her ideas here. They later followed up their snowy learning by creating a lapbook.
Here’s the cover of their lapbook. Isn’t it adorable?
Here, you can take a peak inside of the lapbook . . .
I love the back cover of their lapbook, with this precious snowman, with the levitating head 🙂
Monica’s boys are of preschool age, so they focused on the letter ‘S’, things that are white, and story sequence. They practiced their coloring skills with their snowflakes, and their cutting skills by cutting circles to make a snowman.
I love how Monica 3-hole punches her lapbooks, so she can store them in a binder. What a great idea!
You can find this adorable The Snowy Day lapbook FREE at Homeschool Share.
So get out there and make a snowman, have a snowball fight, examine snow under a microscope, look for animal tracks in the snow– just remember to bundle up and have fun!
Monica and her husband, Geoff have three boys: Mike (4), Joe (2) and baby George. She loves learning, teaching, and her family. You can learn more about about Monica and her homeschool days on her blog, Family Fun Notebook.
