Snowmen at Night

I plan to read this book to my class after the break.


Not only is the story creative but the kids LOVE to look for the hidden pictures on each page.







Then I will ask each student to imagine they have built a snowman in their own yard. What do they think their snowman might do at night? You can download the writing response paper HERE



















I will post their writing with the TLC snowman we will be making although I think I'll have them add silver stars.














If you don't have the TLC book, Mrs. Jump has something similar for sale on TPT. You can take a look at http://mrsjumpsclass.blogspot.com. Her stuff is always really cute!

OR you can have them draw the scene they are describing.

Enjoy!

  1. This is a really cute idea! Thanks for sharing. Makinglearningfun.com also has a hexagon snowman project that would be perfect to use to make your snowmen!
    I tried to download your writing response paper, but I must not have the right font. I just get slashes where the lines should be.
    Thanks for posting!

  2. I changed it to a pdf so it would look right. Thanks for catching that, Heidi!
