We made it to February! Oh how I love February! Here are a few of my favorite books to read in January and some of the literature response activities we did.
Here is just one of the activities we did with this book. We worked on building oral language for winter clothing. Then we made a circle map of winter clothing.
Mittens or gloves pictograph
We discussed how animals stay warm in the winter. Here is one of our anchor charts. We circled the animals the kids thought hibernated. Chart inspired by First Grade Schoolhouse.
Hibernation chit-chat message to review what we learned.
Martin Luther King chit-chat message to review what we learned.
We made snow caps and wrote about what we like to do in winter.

Have you ever played in the snow graph.
We made snowmen and wrote about what our snowmen would do at night. Idea by Deanna Jump. Love how these turned out.
