After being away from school on Tuesday because of snow, the children were ready for some snow action on Wednesday. I couldn’t resist posting these pictures. In the pictures you see climbing up the hill, sliding down the hill, and kneeling in the snow.
The action that most struck me was a new version of snow angels. I saw this group of three boys huddled on top of each other. I wondered what was happening so I trekked on over to the pile of bodies laying on top of each other. It didn’t seem like there was any harm happening, just lots of giggles. As I listened and watched to see what would happen next, I observed that they were creating snow angels with lots of arms and hands. One child exclaimed, “Look, Darrell, we’ve made a snow angel with 6 hands and 6 arms!” Of course it was the fun, giggles, and creativity going on that kept me there, but there was some “yummy” math happening as well.
