If you are looking for a fun, engaging way to encourage your Kinders or Firsties to write creatively, this will definitely fit the bill.
Children love the snow
and love to build snowmen and of course we all know"Frosty" and how he comes to life one day, but if you have ever read any of the Snowmen stories by Caralyn Buchner, then you know that the snowmen she writes about are alive and having lots of fun.
This fun snowman resource is a companion to go along with her book "Snowmen at Night" but...you really can use it independently by simply asking the question: "If your snowman came to life at night, what would he or she do?"
This Snowman resource not only includes everything you will need to differentiate writing, but also has a really cute craft to go along with it.
Here is what is Included:
⛄3 different sized circles to trace and cut to make a snowman. These can be used as tracers or simply run them off onto cardstock, cut and glue. •Various templates for hats, shirts, a tie, and bow
⛄2 easy writing frames.
⛄1 longer writing frame for stronger writers with handwriting lines.
⛄1 longer writing frame for stronger writers with only lines for writing.
⛄1planning sheet for jotting down ideas.
⛄2 Beginning Middle and End frames for easier writing or just simply writing what the snowman may do for a rough draft and then writing a good copy to display.
⛄I then add lots of beads, scraps, tissue, shape stickers, and all kinds of craft media materials to assist creativity.
⛄An idea with an outline of directions for a lesson.
Some Ideas for Use:
⛄Winter stations with the writing piece as the writing station and the craft for an arts and craft station.
⛄A snowy day activity.
⛄An art activity.
⛄A cooperative group lesson so each group creates one snowman and writes about it.
⛄An indoor recess activity.
⛄Following directions assessment activity.
⛄A response ctivity for a snowman book like the one mentioned above.
⛄Any idea you come up with!
