Finished Snowmen and Writing

Here are some of the finished snowmen!!  SOooOOOOOO CUTE!

This is the writing they completed today.  Today's mini lesson was good writers write directions.  I also introduced transitions and how they help to move a reader through a story.

We brainstormed how to build a snowman and made a list of transitions.  Then they wrote.  Here's an  example.

Random cute photo of the day...Jack and James came up to check in on their math boxes.  Both of them had their pencil behind their ear.  Such hard-working boys!!
