After taking the AOE course "Rethinking Kindergarten" this past summer, I decided to revamp this lesson and give students more choice with how they completed their sponge painted snowmen. I gave each student a stack of multicolored papers and will just a few brief demonstrations on how they might cut their paper to create various parts of their embellishments, they went to work personalizing their snowman. I started by sharing the book SNOWBALLS by Lois Ehlert so they had lots of great ideas for their own snowmen. Some added hair and a few even added strawberry noses. I love the new way this project took itself, a totally student guided project.
