Great for speech-language therapy or differentiated instruction, here are language activities for the Max and Mo book Let's Build a Snowman by Patricia Lakin. Find lesson plans for 5 different sessions, for comparative describing words, sequencing, following directions, retelling the story, and phonological awareness.
There are lessons for 5 sessions.
☀ 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.
☀ There is an activity for finding words that begin with /sn/.
☀ There is a communication board for students who need one.
