Do your students need to get some wiggles out during the cold winter months? Keep them engaged and moving with Build a Snowman Phonology, a fun winter-themed activity gets your students moving around while practicing their phonological targets! It contains 378 stimulus pictures on snowballs, as well as blank snowballs and snowflakes to use with any target, that your students will use to "build" a snowman and winter scene.

This product is also included in the money-saving Winter Phonology Bundle: Penguin, Snowman, and Christmas Tree Scenes. You do not need to purchase this individual product if you already own the bundle. Additionally, this product was updated on 12/10/17. Clip art was updated and additional targets were added.


Place the snowman scene on a large table, or tape/putty to a wall or back of the door. Give your students a snowball with their target sound. Or, give them a blank snowball or snowflake and tell them their target word. Have them practice the word 5x before placing their snowball on the two large circles to help "build" the snowman, or placing a snowflake in the sky/on the ground. Continue until your scene is full!

You can also use this activity to target pronouns ("He has a ___"), combining 3-4 words together to increase MLU (__ on the snowman; put on ___), and even WH questions or functions of the items pictured on the snowballs! Perfect for mixed speech and language groups!

This is also a great activity to incorporate some movement for your students. By hanging the snowman scene on the back of the door or on the wall, your students can walk over to the scene and attach their snowball, rather than sitting for the duration of the session. Alternatively, after they practice their word, give them a specific movement to do (“twirl like a snowflake”) in order to attach their snowball/snowflake. There are lots of possibilities!
