We recently received over 30 inches of snow, and that meant snow days for our teachers and students! Check out how our Library Media Teacher, Barb Jaindl was inspired during a snow day!
More Than One Way to Dig Snow
Snow days can be an opportunity for teachers to uncover other gems to share with students, too. When I spot something worth a closer look on Twitter, like the infographic in this online article and details supporting it, I quickly open another social media tool called Pocket to file and label it to share in the future.
As soon as the snowstorm left enough snow on the ground and street, I was out my back door taking off on my cross country skis. That snow was different than the snow I coasted on later that day and definitely by the next. Once I was back home and sipping on warm hot chocolate, this infographic encapsulated some scientific points for me in an easily readable and visual format and allowed me an opportunity to dig deeper — before I headed back outside to dig my way out of the snowstorm.
I’ve been waiting for the first good snow to share great read alouds like Pulver’s Axle Annie, Keats’ The Snowy Day and Martin’s Snowflake Bentley in the school library.
