Melting Snowman Writing

Several weeks ago I came across a great writing prompt idea on Pinterest.  If you click on Pinterest it will take you to my Primary Writing Board.   I simply love the ideas that I find there and so do my students.

With the wonderful snow that arrived last week and then the terrible rain that came Friday, melting the snow away, I thought this writing idea was aptly suited.   My students could deeply connect and were inspired writers as they watched the snowmen they had built earlier in the week melt away.


  1. Hi Mrs. Barker,

    Thank you for updating us with the kids' in-school activities. This blog is surely a brilliant idea to have the parents had a deeper understanding of what our children are doing in school.

    1. I am so happy you are enjoying it. As a parent myself, it is often hard to know exactly what our children are doing in school and I do hope this blogs helps to ignite some great conversations at home with my students and their parents about the learning going on at school. Thank you, Jennifer
