Miss M did a quick snow globe art and writing project today. First, I just cut a circle out of pale blue construction paper and a black base to go with it. Miss M and I talked about all the different things that could be in a snow globe (she saw one recently so it was fresh in her mind). Then, she drew a picture in her circle. She actually went through four circles before finally getting a drawing she was happy with. In the end, she drew herself.
After it was glued together, I started the writing prompt "Inside my snow globe is...." and she wrote the rest (with spelling help). She wrote "M__ playing in the snow." Then, we wanted to make it look like the snow was falling, so Miss M covered over her drawing with glue and sprinkled on the salt.
She went a little heavy (more is better when you are four), so it looks more like a blizzard, but she was very happy with the results.
(The white strip of paper is just covering up the rest of her name for the photo.)
