|Our Snow Globes|
While the children were making their snow globes, there was much discussion about what it would be like to be inside a snow globe.
We invited the children who are using the Printed (Story) Alphabet to write an ending to a story starter about being trapped in a snow globe. They were very excited to get started on their stories!
|The Printed (Story) Alphabet|
|Story Starter - If I were trapped in a snow globe.....|
Once a child had settled on an idea, they worked with the Printed (Story) Alphabet to bring it to life. Here are some story endings in progress.
|I would put snow everywhere. Then I would break free.|
|I would use my super powers to break free.|
They then wrote their ending on story starter paper. Here are some of their stories.
If I were trapped in a snow globe.....
|I would make a snowman in my backyard with my sister and my daddy. We would go snowboarding.|
|I would make a snow angel with my brother. We would make an igloo to keep warm.|
|I will make a nine centimetre long house. I will go to the store because I need to buy some food.|
|I would dance and also I love snow!|
|I would find Frosty and have a big snowball fight. After we would make sparkly rainbows!|
|I will make hot chocolate and play with a snowman.|
|I would have hot chocolate. I would go sledding with a snowman.|
|I would have a snowball fight and I would have a Christmas tree.|
|I would crack the glass and escape! It is cold in there!|
The children shared their stories with their classmates. Whether they were embracing life within a snow globe or trying to break free, we had a great time listening to the stories.
