All of the presents are open, the Christmas decorations are down and now it’s time to be thinking about what I’m going to do when we get back to school! You guessed it, we’re going to be talking about snow and snowmen!
Over my teaching career, I’ve done several versions of these snowmen. I’ve even shown some over on Instagram. We’ve done counting from 10 to 100, and putting the numbers in order.
And we’ve also completed snowmen with our names.
Gotta make sure that we put everything in the right order!
I’ve also done some number work where students would do a sketch, expanded form, ten frame, etc. After years of doing this activity, I wanted to clean it up a bit, and add more to it.
Every year, my students may not need to work on the same area, and it allows for differentiation if necessary. So one year we may do names, another year we may practice skip counting to 100, or we may do some number work.
If I have students who need to work on different things, then they can complete different snowmen!
There’s also an option for welded/glued sounds, as one year I found myself with students that really needed to work on this skill.
If you have a student that does not need to work on their name, they could also work on sight words! If students are working on their numeracy skills, the awesome thing is that there are several options to choose from!
I wanted something quick, and easy to prep, to complete the first day when we come back. To find out more information, click on any of the pictures.
