Created, Kindergarten, & Snowmen

Created, Kindergarten, & Snowmen

By on Feb 13, 2014 in Arts, Elementary Grades | 0 comments

From the desk of Mrs. Harbeck, one of Parkview’s Kindergarten Teachers. With all of the snow we have, students were inspired to work on their snowman glyphs. Our kindergarten class “built” snowmen based on their answers to questions. For example, if the students like snow, they used three circles for the body. If they like to make snowballs, the carrot nosed points to the right. This was a challenging project because there were a lot of steps and students needed to listen and follow directions. After the snowmen were complete, students wrote and described how their snowman looked. While we were working on this project, we had a class discussion on how we had to put thought into how to make our snowmen. Then, we talked about how each of us is special and uniquely made. Psalm 139:13-16 says, For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Future posts by email?
