This craft focuses on following one-step directions, with adjectives. This activity great for teachers, SLPs and parents to capture the attention of students, using the magic of winter!
(1) print out enough books for each of your students (and you, too) to have one. **On yours, you can laminate and use Velcro pieces to model multiple times.
(2) have your students cut out the components of a snowman.
**I have included cutting pages with lines for those with fine-motor deficits, and one without the lines, for students who can match the pieces precisely.** I would suggest playing a song while the students cute, maybe Frosty the Snowman, to keep a timeframe to have cutting completed.
(3) Read through the entire story once with your students.
(4) Go back to the story and read a page at a time.
**Read the instruction once, and wait up to 10 seconds for a response, giving increased processing time. Can implement Increased opportunities for communication by having students request “I want BIG/SMALL/DIFFERENT...” (giving 2-5 choices) using their preferred communication system.
(5) Glue on snowman pieces, one page at a time.
(6) Once all pieces are added, and the snowman is constructed, attempt to have the student repeat the steps, with his or her book as a visual.
