We’ve been working on winter stories for quite a few weeks. We started reading a book called Winter: The Coldest Season of All! from Cantata Learning. We noticed the art work in the illustrations, and how winter scenes use a lot of white and different shades of blue, grey, purple, and even some black.
After we read the story, we created a word bank of winter words:
snow, snowflakes, ice, white, cold, crisp, freezing, snowman, blankets, hot cocoa, sleds, skis, skates, snowboards, ear muffs gloves, coats, hats, mittens, scarf, snow pants, boots, trees, animals, hibernate, migrate.
We started thinking about stories by drawing our own winter pictures. Some of us drew and colored on paper. Some of us started in the app Paper by 53.
Some of our stories will be in video form, exported from Explain Everything. Some will be written on paper and shared with photos of our work.
