Snowmen in Bikinis?!?!

Happy Monday! 
Do those two words go together?  
They do when you come home to this little package on the front porch.

My new camera arrived and I'm so ridiculously excited! 

I forced myself grade some papers and enter some test scores before I opened it tonight.  Now...I shall open it and take approximately 2000 pictures of the dog while I watch The Bachelor.

Before that fun commences, I did want to drop in and share a cute little freebie with you.  This was a totally spur of the moment little writing activity that I put together last week to go with this fabulous book and review some science information on seasons.

After we read the book, we discussed what we would do with our snowmen if they stayed all year long.  My babies came up with some fun ideas for their "snow people".  They wanted to lounge at the pool with them, go trick or treating, carve pumpkins, and watch 4th of July fireworks!  It was a great review of the seasons and holidays associated with them.

Here is a your copy of the cover if you'd like to do this activity in your classroom, too! I just stapled this to a couple pages of writing paper (one side for each of the four seasons) and let them go to town!

Here are some fun examples! :)

They crack me up!

Happy teaching to you!

Hi Amy,

I hadn't seen this book. I added to my list of snowmen books. I'm going to add this writing activity to my winter writing plans. Thanks so much.
