Primary Punch Thank You Pinterest!
My favorite writing activity of the year! I love all things winter, add in some glitter and you have a project that is sure to be a hit! I did this project with my students last year, and the haunted houses I did this year was a play on this snow globe writing activity. They write about what they would see, feel and do if they lived in a snow globe.
I began by building some background knowledge. Living in Central Florida, a vast majority of my students have never seen real snow.
We talked about what they knew about snow and winter. They said that it was cold and wet. I then had them describe what they had seen or heard that lead them to believe that snow was cold.
They made connections to movies or TV shows they had seen that had people wearing coats, gloves, etc. They talked about it getting so cold that you can see your breath.
They also talked about Christmas lights shining on the sparkly snow. Some of them even captured that in their snow globes! To enrich this introduction lesson, I read them a couple of short books that were set in snowy settings.
This is a wonderful classic! I was even able to find a claymation version of this on YouTube to show my class! This book is beautifully illustrated.
It was a wonderful read. The best part about this book After reading these books and brainstorming some great descriptive phrases and words, we spent day 2 writing rough drafts. We then wrote our final copies on the layered booklets, cut out the globes and bases and let the fun begin!
After drawing and coloring, they outlined their pictures with extra fine point black Sharpie markers. I managed to control the chaos and keep the glitter on the tiles.
Glitter just seems to make everything better. Normal snow scenes are transformed into magical fantasy lands! A snow globe base. Final copy of the flip book placed on the base. To get just the right size "globe" I used an Easter bucket I bought from Target a couple of years ago.
I actually used it for a game at the Spring Carnival during my first year teaching. I love reusing things!
They have added some much needed sparkle and shine to the 4th grade hallway! Hope you love them as much as I do!These little DIY snow globe ornaments are so sweet when filled with some kids’ artwork and faux snow.
They are adorable hanging on the tree and would also be a great gift for Grandparents. They are adorable hanging on the tree and would also be a great gift for Grandparents. Thank You Pinterest! I have found the cutest writing activities thanks to Pinterest, well I guess I should say thank you to the awesome teachers who came up with the idea and THEN posted them to Pinterest for me to find!
I have used your snow globe activity the past two winters and my students have enjoyed it both years. The one thing I. A homemade snow globe is a childhood must!
Finally we have made some. The best part about these snow globes is that they give you the perfect opportunity to get rid of some of the pesky plastic. Our snow globe project and writing were a huge success and definitely something that I will be doing in the future!
It’s nice to be able to have all the snowy fun without having to deal with the actual freezing temperatures and hassle of real snow!Update: A lot of people have asked about the snow glitter.

Dec 11, · I need to stay away from Pinterest and teacher blogs. The cute ideas always seem to get my credit card in trouble at Barnes and Noble. I just had to order the book, Snow Globe Family, so we can do the writing activity after our winter break.
