We have been working on a Pinterest inspired project where you take paper snowballs and use one snowball for each letter of your name and you build a snowman.

You will notice the picture here is not perfect. In fact, the light above us in flickering on and off all through the lesson, I am walking around with my phone snapping pictures and teaching math while one child is having a bloody nose. This lesson was planned and planned well in advance. I even purchased a book to go along with my objectives. I guess that free 3 day shipping was a heck of a deal because the book never arrived so I guess that is not...perfect.
We were able to finish our lesson and it was time to staple up our project to create that perfect bulletin board. As the children were independently working, I was on the floor, on my stomach, making sure that all of the snowmen were going to hang...perfect.
