First time buying a 'Build a Snowman' pack? Why not check out our money saving Growing Bundle!
This pack contains the following sounds:
/r/ - word initial- 10 words (page 5)
Intervocalic /r/ - word medial- 10 words (page 6)
Medial and final ‘ar’- 10 words total (page 7)
Medial and final ‘er’- 10 words total (page 8)
Medial and final ‘air’- 10 words total (page 9)
Initial, medial and final ‘ire’- 10 words total (page 10)
Medial and final ‘ear’- 10 words total (page 11)
Initial, medial and final ‘or’-10 words total (page 12)
Word initial /r/ blends- br, cr, dr, fr, gr, pr, tr- 10 words each sound (page 13-19).
There is also a word list included on page 4, for if you need to clarify any of the target words. The words are on each part of the snowman (except the arms).
This activity is all no prep! Simply print the required pages; each page has all the parts needed to build a snowman. Students practice the words and color the pieces. They then cut out the pieces and assemble the snowman (you can glue it onto cardstock or just slightly overlap each piece). It should look like the one on the front of this pack when it is finished! (Note, the bow is optional).
(Please note, the arms do not have sounds on them, you can cut these out or students may prefer to draw the snowman’s arms themselves, and there are no pieces for the eyes/mouths, so students can draw their own faces on the snowman).
You can encourage students to practice their sounds in a short phrase too, e.g. “rainbow on the scarf”, “a ring on his face”.
