The Teacher’s 12 Days of Christmas: Day 8 AND Top 5 Freebies of the Week!

Happy Saturday!

First, check out these  melting snowman cookies my kiddos made yesterday. These have been all of Pinterest. It’s SO not my original idea. This was the last thing we did last period yesterday, and my kids had a blast. Their cookies looked… interesting, but they had fun and that’s what it’s all about. They were also delicious, so looks didn’t really matter anyway.

Melted Snowman Cookie  Supplies

Here are the supplies I used. I planned to bake cookies, but I had a cold all week so I opted to just buy some from the local grocery store. It was the best 4 bucks I’ve ever spent.

Melted Snowman Cookie 1

Here are the easy peasy steps. This one is mine. As you can see, I have very little chance of ever being a cake/pasty decorator. 😉

Melted Snowman Cookie 2

They had SUCH a bast. 🙂

Melted Snowman Cookie 3

Here are a couple of the finished products. We learned that piping frosting is tricky for 2nd graders, but it’s still yummy and fun!

Melted Snowman Cookie 4

We made these to accompany our “How My Snowman Melted” writing and art project that I’ll post about tomorrow or Monday. This was their reward for doing such a great job with their projects (and also a little added incentive to make yesterday go smoothly, which it did!)

I will definitely do this again next year. It was such a great way to end our day right before the break.

Today I have an AWESOME deal for you AND the Top 5 Freebies, so let’s get right into it!

Number 5.

Sight-Word-Snapshot-What-Can-You-Do-PREVIEWI love this freebie from Amy Swan, and I love that she calls sight words, snapshot words! Very cute! These sight word practice pages  will help students develop a dynamic bank of sight word phrases which will transfer into their authentic writing – resulting in rich, fluent writing, as well as easing the frustration often felt by emergent writers. A student-friendly writing checklist is provided at the bottom of each journal page.

Number 4.

Sweet Scoops Contraction FunThis engaging, colorful activity from Friends in First allows your students to practice their contractions! Each ice cream cone has a contraction – students should find the two words on the ice cream scoops that make the contraction. I don’t know about you, by my students can always use practice on contractions. I know they’ll love this sweet, ice cream themed game!
