I saw the cutest display at a
preschool last year. They had been reading books about Tracks
and who makes them. Then they took white paper and each kid made a
footprint with paint. The caption said "Whose tracks are
these?" Each child had written their name under their
footprint and the teacher covered the name with a flap. I saw
many adults guessing and peeking! What an authentic reason to read!

First, make snowflakes from white construction paper like you did as
a child (take a paper, fold it several times and cut out shapes.
When unfolded you have a unique snowflake). Then make a 3-D
airplane out of a toilet paper roll. Cover the roll with your
choice color of construction paper. Next cut a slit in the
roll. Make a propeller and two wings and glue them to the roll.
To reinforce the wings so they stay straight glue popsicle sticks to
the underside. Next color or cut out a man or woman dressed in
winter clothes. He/She will be the pilot of the plane. Slide
him/her into the slit in the roll and tape him down. Next make
a banner that says something such as "Here comes Winter"
or "Time for Winter", etc. Attach the airplane to the banner
with yarn. Cover the board in blue paper and make a border of
snowflakes. Make snow mounds from construction paper on the
bottom for the ground. Attach the banner to the board and make
it look like the plane is pulling the banner behind it. You can
make the plane and banner bigger to cover the whole board or you can
make it smaller so that you can make snowflakes with each child's
name on it. If possible let the children make their own
snowflakes (if they are old enough) Add some clouds to the sky
and you now have a wonderful winter board!!!

A blizzard of self-esteem boosters is heading toward your classroom! Have
each child fold and cut white paper or a doily to make a snowflake. In the
center of the snowflake, attach a photograph of the child. Mount the
snowflakes on a board that has been decorated as shown. If desired,
lightly spray the background paper with artificial snow before mounting
