Classroom Management Quiet-in-Hallway Song~ If you haven't seen these videos before, you have to check this one out! Teacher Tipster's 2:39 minute video explains how to get your class singing along to his version of a classic song. At the end of the song he leads the class quietly down the hall.

After reading a wintry book, allow your students to make snow paint. Snow paint is inexpensive, easy to make, and tons of fun. To make snow paint simply mix equal amounts of white glue and shaving cream together. Cut out various winter shapes such as snowmen and snowflakes from cardstock. Allow your little ones to spread their snow all over their shapes. When the snow paint dries, it will become puffy. Your students will have a blast with this activity!
