In math we read Snowballs and talked about how real snowballs are spheres and the pictures in the book were circles. We discussed the differences between 2D and 3D shapes and then make a 2D snowman. The problem was that we didn't have all of the shapes we needed. Luckily the kids soon discovered that if they put two half circles together they got a circle, two triangles made a rectangle, and two squares together made another rectangle!
We reviewed our vocabulary words, creep, nestle, and arrive by acting them out.
