There are 8 puzzles
, so that you can practice upper and lowercase letters
, counting forwards and backwards
, as well as skip counting by 2s, 3s, 5s, and 10s
, with Pete the Puzzling Snowman.
Print, color, laminate and trim a set of "Standard Snowman Puzzles”, keeping each puzzle
in its own Baggie, and use them for an independent center activity
This is also a quick, easy and fun, whole-group craftivity
for your kiddos too.
Children can color my snowman face, or they can draw one of their own, on the blank pattern
After children cut up their puzzle
template, they arrange the pieces on a blue sheet of construction paper, leaving a little gap in-between each strip, creating a cool mosaic effect
To practice another one of my report card standards, I have my kiddos trace
the dashed letters/numbers in an ABAB pattern
using two colors.
Wiggle eyes, and heart stickers for cheeks, add extra pizzazz
, as does adding hatbands, a scarf, and stick arms.
For that finishing touch
, have students use a Q-tip and dab “snowflakes” on the blue background. Silver glitter glue also looks cool.
Completed projects make a super-cute bulletin board

I’ve also included a blank belly
that you can program with math equations, Dolch sight words, spelling words
, or whatever.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me hoping your kiddos enjoy practicing a variety of standards with a frosty friend.
