You know that time of the year when you go from building a snowman one day to making an ice cream run the next? That’s exactly where we are right now. So I had my first graders draw snow people (because snowmen seemed politically incorrect). And because I’m tired of winter and refused to cater to the season any longer, we added cones. The kids thought that was hilarious. We talked about shading and painted with tempera paints. The following week they detailed them using colored pencils, oil pastels and markers. I was so pleased with the results!
