This picture doesn't do the SNOWSTORM justice ... but believe me, it wasn't pretty. :(
So ... taking advantage of the moment, we decided to do something about it ... and practise a little persuasive writing while we were at it. We wrote persuasive letters to Mother Nature and BEGGED her to bring us some Spring weather. We've done some persuasive writing already this year, so I just whipped up a quick chart to remind students what they needed to include in their letters (it's quick - not pretty, didn't have the time for pretty this morning). We orally brainstormed ideas to include for our reasons, then the students completed their rough copies and published copies. My students are becoming such fantastic little writers - can't believe the growth I'm seeing!!!
I had to make a bulletin board on one of the blank walls outside the classroom - we're completely out of space in the classroom! I LOVE this border I bought earlier this year, and have been dying to use it somewhere. So, bulletin board done ... and I tried my very best to bring a little spring and sunshine into our day.
So, if your weather was better than this today, please feel free to send some of it my way. :)
