"When Fred started jogging, there was only a couple of inches of snow on the ground."
We made snow pictures so that we could measure how deep our snow was.
We painted our pictures in pointillism fashion with Q-tips and white paint.
First we outlined,
Then we filled it in.
After we were finished with our pictures we measured the low point and high point of our snow.
We wrote our low and high point in white colored pencil.

We practiced counting by 5's in Fred fashion. Click this link to download and print our work pages that we used for this lesson.

"And the temperature was falling..."
I found these FREE printable thermometers on TPT and printed them out on card stock.
I wrote temperatures on the white board and my kiddos set their practice thermometers to those temperatures. You can make it a game by having your kiddos race.
I also found this matching game on TPT for FREE of course. I gave each child two thermometers and two cards that didn't match their thermometers and had them play go fish style.
I made this worksheet on Math-Aids.com
To gain a better understanding of negative numbers we drew a tree with roots. Ground level being zero, above ground being positive numbers, and below ground being negative numbers.
Mama Bear's negative number tree.
Big Man's negative number tree.
We used rulers to make our number lines and separated each number by an inch.
This is the counting by 10's work page that we used to reinforce the skill.
Good job Little Mama!
"Ten are on the top, and ten on the bottom. 10+10=20."
I drew and cut out the mouths for them. They colored them in.
And glued on the teeth.
"Baby teeth are called deciduous teeth."
Little Guy still has all of his deciduous teeth.
Very nice job Mama Bear!
How much is a mile? Fred usually runs 10 miles but today only ran 2 miles. I created a cute work page about miles and feet.
