I hope you’re enjoying this holiday season with lots of friends and family. I love this time of year! The holidays always make me stop, appreciate, and be thankful……and thankful I am. I live in such a beautiful place. It’s remote and at 8,600 feet up in the mountains.
So-o-o, that means giving up a lot of conveniences. But being a Southern girl from Louisiana and then living in Houston for all but the last year, the snow, mountains, and calm are a welcomed change. And then this morning, when I checked our temperature…EEEEK!
This made me think about the cold, the snow, and making snowmen. Then, my thoughts circled back to being thankful. Thankful that I can connect to the world with the Internet – yes, we have it! Thankful to share my resources and ideas right here with you, and thankful for all of my friends and followers who are always supportive and just plain wonderful, giving people.
Here’s a “feeling thankful” freebie for each of you reading my blog. If you don’t have snow yet, I hope you eventually have some this year. If that’s not very likely where you live, let me know. We have enough to share!
Our kids love these challenges. They use their money skills and guess and check until they find the coins that will create the snowman worth the amount on the task card. They also have to make their amounts match the snowman accessories. Then they use the recording sheet to “build” their snowman.
This is such a fun and creative way to practice the sometimes not so fun skill of counting coins. It also makes a great winter display of student work.
I hope you’ll grab the freebie above from our free library and if you need more challenges, check out the full resource below with 20 challenges. It has 5 levels of differentiation so ALL of your learners can work at their own level!
Wishing you a winter filled with friends, family, wonderful memories . . . and lots of snow.
