Our First Snow Day of 2012!

Living on a gravel road and teaching in a rural school district definitely has it's perks! We woke up to about an inch of snow this morning and we got the call at 5:50 that school had been canceled for the day. It continues to snow, so who knows what tomorrow will bring? I kept waking up all night looking out the window to see how much snow had accumulated because 16 of my individual barometers were definitely indicative of a snow day yesterday!

I vow to get some lesson planning done today. Sadly though, I left everything at school that I need. I might have to sweet talk the hubby into taking me to town. :)

This week we read the book Footprints in the Snow and used it to make predictions. It is also a wonderful story for making inferences. Especially if you stop right before the wolf starts getting hungry. :) Click on the picture below to download the freebie.

Have a great day!

  1. LUCKY! We had a similar snowfall, but none of the schools closed. Some of us had a 2 hour commute this morning. I saw 9 accidents on the way to school and two more from my classroom window! (I can see the highway.).

    Yikes! can I just go home? :-)

    1. Goodness! That's scary! I don't like driving in the snow and ice. I don't care if it's 1/2 an inch or a foot deep. It scares me! I hope you made it back and forth safely.

  3. We had a snow day, too! To top it off, dad had a four day weekend, so we've all been enjoying a nice, relaxed day at home!
