A resource for special education, autism, differentiated instruction for the Max and Mo book Let's Build a Snowman by Patricia Lakin.
There are guided reading lessons for 5 days. There are activities for real/not real (Can hamsters really talk and cut and paste?), comparative adjectives (snowmen are made from big, bigger, and biggest snow balls), sequencing the steps (for making real and paper snowmen), retelling the story and mapping it. And for those who do not live in the snow belt, there is a discussion/activity of what you can and can’t do in the snow. You can make your own paper snowmen using either the sequence in the book or one provided that is a little easier.
Make as many copies of the blank “Make a Snowman” page as you need for students to complete as many of the sequencing activities as you want.
There is an activity for finding words that begin with /sn/ and discriminating them from other words that begin with /s/ or s-blends.
There is a communication board for students who need one.
