Superlative Snowmen

So last week we were learning about comparative and superlative adjectives and so naturally I was perusing Pinterest for cute Wintery ideas and found this...(which had no link back to blog or site, so if you know who this idea belongs to...please feel free to share so I can give credit!)


And since it isn't St. Patrick's day, I had the idea to use the concept for snowmen! 

Thus, the Superlative Snowman was born!!



Aren't they cute!!?? I turned it into a fabulous winter door display!

We spent one day on comparative adjectives and one day on superlative adjectives. At the end of each day, we created a wordle of examples and those are what you see at the top of the door display. At the end of both days, we created the snowmen!

I will be back tomorrow with some fun measurement ideas from today! It was awesome but I left the files to share at school so you'll just have to wait... =) 

And since my milk box joke was such a hit during Five for Friday, I thought I'd share another. 

BUT this time, the first person to give a correct answer will win an item of their choice from my blog! Please leave your email in the comment with your answer!

Q: Why don't fish play basketball?

Happy joking! And no GOOGLING! That's cheating!

  3. They don't want to get near a net...? I just had a jokes conversation with kiddos at school today. One of my boys was mad because I was answering all of his jokes right!

    Crossing my fingers!!!

  12. What a cute idea! Thanks for sharing! :)

    Great jokes - I'll have to share that one with my students. Recently, my kiddos are really into jokes - but they are usually laughing too hard by the end to properly deliver the punch line :)

  13. I like how you have taught superlatives, some children struggle to understand them but I think your idea will support their learning. They also look like they made a great display too!

    I hope you can leave some feedback on my blog too.
    All the best,
