Building Snowmen

Hey guys and dolls, how’s it going?
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!
Building Snowmen allows students to complete a craft and to practice their literacy and numeracy skills. It is a great winter activity for your little learners!
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!

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 things is that there are several options to choose from!
