Snowflake Rainbow

 The last couple days of school I was attempting to finish all my grading for the nine weeks.  When that task was finished...I taught my students how to cut snowflakes.  4th grade was too busy finishing they did not participate in snowflaking.  I had my students go step by step with me for the first 2..but after that they were able to do it on their own.  I only asked for 1 snowflake from each student to create this display outside my room.  Not all finished more than I did not as many as I had been hoping for.    I did the rainbow background because I just needed color in the hall! 
 I couldn't hack doing only blue background paper.


  1. Very nice and colorful!! I had read previously about your affinity for scrapbooking paper (i believe)--you could also do shades of cools with black--make it a night time snowstorm! Up here in NH we've had the real thing! Merry Christmas!

  2. Hi Mr. E!

    I teach my third grade to cut snowflakes every year. It always amazes me how many children have never done it before. They just love cutting snowflakes!

    Your rainbow background is beautiful! (I might have to steal that idea for next year.)

    Happy Holidays!


  3. I love this idea and next year i want to do it in school with my pupils...

    thank you for showing!
