Here's a picture of the final product! We do still have a handful of postcards to add, but I'm pretty excited about how it's looking. Friends, I have taught first grade for twelve years and if I had a teacher bucket list, exchanging postcards would be one of the things on it. This is definitely one of my favorite activities I've ever done.
Then, for writing this week we wrote poems about snow. This is the little craft we did. It's based off of a craft from The Applicious Teacher. We just used construction paper, felt, chalk (for the snowflakes), and I had spray on fake snow, so we used a little of that, too. My kiddos picked their scarf and shirt colors and put everything together. To help it go a little quicker, I drew the main pieces for them to cut out.
