Your students will enjoy making these snowmen with a moveable carrot nose. Choose whatever standard you want your kiddo's to work on: upper and lowercase letter identification, counting by 1's, skip counting by 2's, 3's, 5's or 10's, or use on your December or January calendar to countdown the days. These are a great way to whole-group assess as well. Students could also partner up and quiz each other.
