Build a Little Snowman

Sung to:  "I'm a Little Teapot"

by Mrs. Gary McNitt


Build a little snowman, starting with his feet.

Put on lots of snow, and pat it all so neat.

Then make a round ball, and put it up on top.

Then the sun will come out, and make the snowman hot.

A Chubby Little Snowman



A chubby little snowman
Had a carrot nose
Along came a rabbit
And what do you suppose?
That hungry little bunny,
Looking for his lunch,
ATE the snowman's carrot nose...
Nibble, nibble, CRUNCH!

The Snowman

Author Unknown


One day we built a snowman,
We built him out of snow;
You should have seen how fine he was,
All white from top to toe.

We poured some water over him,
To freeze his legs and ears;
And when we went indoors to bed,
We thought he'd last for years.

But, in the night a warmer kind
Of wind began to blow;
And Jack Frost cried and ran away,
And with him went the snow.

When we went out next morning
To bid our friend "Good Day",
There wasn't any snowman there...
He'd melted right away!

The Snowman Ran and Ran

Sung to:  "Row, Row, Row Your Boat"

by Jean Warren


The snow, snow, snowman

Came out to play.

But the children cried, "Get back inside

The sun is out today."


The snow, snow, snowman

Started to run away.

But when he ran, he ran and ran

Until a puddle lay.



Little Snowman

Sung to:  "I'm a Little Teapot"

I'm a little snowman round and fat,
Here are my mittens,
Here is my hat.
Add a little scarf and a carrot nose.
You stand so tall when the cold wind blows.


Sung to:  "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" 

Snowflakes, snowflakes falling down,
On the trees and on the ground.
I will build a man of snow,
Tall black hat and eyes of coal,
If the sun comes out today,
I will watch you melt away!

I Can Make a Snowman

Sung to:  "Mary Had a Little Lamb



I can make a Snowman

Snowman, Snowman.

I can make a Snowman,

My Snowman will be white.



Mr. Snowman

Found in Lollipops 1988


First the body

And then his head

Add a big black hat

And a scarf of red

Now a mouth that smiles

And two round eyes

A big carrot nose


My, he looks nice!



I Am a Snowman

I am a snowman.

See my black hat.

See my button eyes.

See my carrot nose.

See my green scarf.

See my red mittens.

See my ice skates.

I am a snowman.



Snowman Happy

This is snowman happy.

This is snowman sad.

Now you see him sleepy.

Now you see him mad.

This is snowman in pieces small.

But in my yard, he's best of all!

Have your students sit around your carpet area in a circle. 

Place all of the snowman cards in a line face up inside the circle. 

Read the first attribute to your class. 

Use a pointer and point to the first card asking "Can this be Sammy Snowman?" 

Whether your students answer, yes or no, always ask them why.

Yes, it can be Sammy Snowman because he has an orange nose.

Point to all all the cards asking "Can this be Sammy Snowman?"

Go to the next attribute.

When you find a snowman without the attribute, turn the card over. 

Continue until all attributes are found and you find Sammy Snowman!

  Math Activities




Big, Bigger, Biggest from KinderLit


After reading The Biggest, Best Snowman by Margery Cuyler, we make a book from KinderLit about size relationships and problem solving..  I copy a book packet for each child.  For each page of the book, the children sound out and decide what letters are needed to write the words as I write the correct letters on the white board.  Then they copy the words into their KinderLit books.  Then, they do the illustrations for the page.  At the end of the book, each child makes their own snowman.  These books are read over and over.  The students must touch each word while we are reading.  Parents are really excited that their children are reading the books when they are taken home.

You can find this and many more great books from KinderLit.









We estimate marshmallows.


Roll a Snowman

The first student to finish drawing a snowman is the winner.




Journal Writing

If I were a snowman ...

In the winter, I can see ...

Winter is ...

My snowman is ...


Language Activities

After reading the story The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats, find the three "snow" words in the story.  Explain that these are compound words.  Print them on chart paper as the children find them.  Beside each word write the words in two parts. 



Art Projects

There are five TLC projects during the Winter unit.  The Snowman and the Snowflake from the Winter Book,

 the January Tree from A Year of Quilts Book, the Snowman from the Beginning Lessons Book, and the Eskimo from More People.
