Winter Snowman Unit Fun!

Hey all, It was good to get back to work today but I am exausted! It is amazing how just 2 weeks can get you so off schedule! Anyways my class and I had a great time starting our Snowman Theme today that I just had to share! I started by reading them the teacher book, "How to build a Snowman" from my TpT Winter Snowman Unit
This sequencing book starts with building the body of the snowman and identfying the top, middle and bottom. The next page has the arms going in on the left and the right. From there we dress and put a face on the snowman. The last page of the book says, "Can you draw me a snowman?" The kids had so much fun drawing their snowmen and i am going to add them to the end of our book and place it in the library. Here is a picture of the snowman my lowest student drew, youcan see that she was able to draw three circles and sticks for arms. This was a huge accomplishment for her:
This next picture is a representation of the typical snowmen that were drawn in my class. This is going to make the cutest book!
After lunch I decided to see if the class could remember how to assemble the snowman. I took my large board pieces and placed tape on the back. I made a pile of pieces on the bottom of the board and had the class tell me where to place the pieces. They had to use specific language with all of the details I needed to know where to put the piece or I would purposly put it somewhere else. They did great!
This activity was so popular that I have turned it into a center for the week, the kids loved rearranging and giggling at the snowman!
Be sure to check out this fun Snowman unit on TpT! It has 106 pages of fun activities and everything you have seen in this post for $6.00. Enjoy! Winter Snowman Unit Till next time, Christine

  1. Where can I purchase the book How to Build a Snowman? I have looked on-line and can't find it.


Comments and Ideas are always welcome, I am always looking for new units to create for TpT!
