Today was build a sock snowman gift day! It was crazy, messy, and so fun!
Students walked around my table collecting the pieces they would need by reading the post its.
Next, they put a half cup of rice in the bottom and then stuffed their socks with batting.
We hot glued together.
Then we fell in LOVE!
Build a Snow Sock Success!
We made gift bags and wrote poems with love…
While we were working on parent gifts, the rest of the class continued with our guided reading and guided math schedule.
Here’s some pictures of our December Math Journals
Good luck making it through the rest of the week!!! 🙂

I love how you always cover complex things slowly and steadily. It absolutely always gets me thinking about how I teach. Thank you for that! Love the snow socks!

I made these last year, and I'm making them again this year. But OMG, finding WHITE socks was HARD! I couldn't find any without grey reinforced toes! I finally bought little girls' Bobby Socks. I hope they still look cute!

I found some at K-Mart–they are the Athletech brand–$8.99 for 10 pair.
OMG! those snowmen are so cute, hopefully I can make them next year!

Your parent gifts are adorable!!! Maybe I will try that in the future sometime! 🙂
I hope you will be making more season sets of math notebook pages because I have loved your December ones and so have my kids!
NO JOKE about the all white tube socks. I had to go to THREE different Wal-Marts before I was able to find any!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But my kids are loving making them! We are only working on them the last half hour of the day, so the last half of my class will finish decorating them tomorrow. They are obsessed, and (quietly) wishing they could keep them for themselves. But also very excited for their parents to see. 🙂

Your Dec math journals are fabulous! Copying them on bright paper is a great idea!

Reagan, I love these! We used to make these for teething babies…but you fill the sock with other socks that have lost their matches! We left off the buttons, too! The babies would chew on them because it soothed their gums and when needed we would just throw it into the washer!
I'm absolutely loving your math journals…are you making more?
