Do you read “Snowmen at Night” by Caralyn Buehner?
It’s a sweet story about what snowmen do when they come to life at night.
I especially like the short rhyming verse and wonderful illustrations.
This is one of my students’ favorite winter stories, so with that in mind I designed some craftivities, which help children sequence and retell the story, practicing those standards in an interesting and fun way.
Completed projects make a really cute bulletin board, or look super dangling from the ceiling.
I’ve included 2, “Snowmen at Night” posters to use with your display.
There are 4 options for the crafty “danglers”, so that you can diversify ability levels, or give your students a choice. (Check the PREVIEW for lots of samples.)
Besides making the craft, older students can practice their comprehension and writing skills, by explaining what the snowmen did at night on the back of their project.
I’ve included 2 writing prompt worksheets you can use for this.
You can also make an extra set of “snowballs” (large or small options), laminate, trim and use as an independent center, where students arrange the circle graphics in the correct sequential order of the story.
You could also add a magnet dot on the back, pass them out to students, then sequence the story on your white board after you read it.
Another option is to make a “Let’s Sequence the Story” Itty Bitty booklet collating the mini snowball graphics and adding the cover.
The activities are different enough so that you can do several.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy practicing a variety of standards with a “Snowmen at Night” craft.
