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.
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!
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.

The first student to finish drawing a snowman is the winner.
If I were a snowman ...
In the winter, I can see ...
Winter is ...
My snowman is ...
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.
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.
This was a combined TLC snowflake and a pattern block snowflake.
The Snowflake is from The Quilt Book.
