I really wanted to make some little froggies, so I decided to gear our cinquain poetry that way. We read several books about frogs, did a few cinquains together, and then they got to work! We used Cara's cinquain ideas to get us going :)
Santa Barbara Snowman: This activity was easy-peasy and made a neat and funny craft. Living in sunny Southern California, we don’t really have opportunities to make snowmen, so using a simple pre-printed sheet with the outline of a puddle and an overturned paper bowl the kids made their own melty, sunshine snowmen. They put the usual accessories on, with the exception of the sunglasses, and then wrote a sentence about where their snowman should move to or what happened to him. Easy.
