Hi, Teacher Friends!
This activity pack was designed as a companion to any winter theme you might be using in your classroom this snowy season, but the main premise is celebrating the birthdays of snowmen!
I have included a variety of activities so that you may pick and choose what will work best for your classroom. The idea for this unit was inspired by the lyrics in Carol KingÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½s Chicken Soup with Rice ÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½ one of my FAVORITE kidÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½s songs!
In February it will be
My snowman's anniversary
With cake for him and soup for me!
Happy once, happy twice
Happy chicken soup with rice!
Of course, it will also pair nicely with Caralyn BuehnerÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½s Snowmen All Year, too. If anything, hopefully it will help pass the time until Spring Break! Ha! Just kidding!
