After reading the mentor text, Snowmen at Night by Caralyn & Mark Buehner, students will imagine what would happen if they had a snowman that came to life. The teacher models creating a fantasy story about her own snowman who disappeared after a night of playing with his friends. Students will help the teacher generate a list of adjectives to describe the lost snowman, and then write a lost snowman report. The students will then have the opportunity to draw, color, and describe their own snowmen. Students will then try to match up the lost snowmen with the descriptions written by their classmates. Teachers will have flexibility while using the activities included in this product. It can be projected, so that the students can see the example that I provided. The last two slides are printables that you can use to differentiate for your students who may not be able to draw their own snowman and write their own stories. The snowman is my own drawing that I shared with students to save time. I encouraged them to add details to the original drawing to personalize it. I created the fill-in-the-blank form to use with first graders, but I had quite a few take the form and then go on to write original stories.
