What educators are saying

This was such a cute activity and a perfect companion for "Snowmen at Night." The sliding feature was a nice touch and made it easy for my students to follow along.
This was a perfect sequencing activity to do with our students. It worked well with our reading comprehension unit on Snowmen at Night.


Do you read ”Snowmen At Night” by Carolyn Buehner

It’s one of my students’ favorite winter stories and perfect for practicing the “sequencing and retelling a story” standards.

With that in mind, I designed this quick, easy and fun snowman “slider” craftivity, that will help your students retell the story in the proper order.

There are 2 snowmen to choose from. Pick your favorite or give children a choice. I’ve also provided a borderless option for the larger snowman.

Children color the story elements on the “slider strip” then cut and glue it together.

As they pull on the end of the “slider” the various pictures go through the “window”, so that children can take turns retelling the story to a partner or reading buddy, then take their snowman home to share with their family, once again practicing these standards.

I introduce the lesson by reading the book Snowmen At Night, then share my completed "slider craftivity” with my students.

So that you can quickly, and easily make an example, I’ve included a full-color slider pattern.

After I read the story, we retell the tale together, using the picture prompts on my snowman.

I have them guess which story element they think comes next before I pull the picture through the “window”.

My students now know what’s expected of them, and are very excited to transition to making a “Snowmen At Night” storytelling slider of their own.

Storytelling sliders are also an easy & interesting way to assess comprehension.

I’ve included a “Let’s “sequence the story” activity for this, where students color and trim the picture “windows” then glue them in the correct order on their worksheet.

There’s also 2, “Here’s What Happened…” writing prompt worksheets, as another way to check comprehension, plus practice sequential writing, hopefully using a variety of ordinal numbers and other transitions.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy storytelling sliders as much as mine do.
