Venn diagrams are an excellent way for students to organize their thoughts before a comparison and contrast writing prompt. There's a Venn diagram comparing 2 snowman characters, as well as one comparing 2 snowman books of their choice.
Lots of standards are covered with this interesting, snowman-themed emergent reader, as students read the repetitive sentences, circle capital letters, add end punctuation, trace and write the words, and color the pictures. Days of the week + color words are reinforced.
Your students will enjoy choosing a 2D shape, folding and snipping it into a lacey snowflake that will become the tummy of their snowman. Includes directions, patterns and a list of helpful websites for more lovely paper snowflake activities.
Rip and tear activities are a super-fun way to help strengthen children's finger muscles. Completed craftivities look like a mosaic and make awesome bulletin boards.
Make a cute winter bulletin board, or locker decoration, with these snowman name stackers, which will help little ones with name identification, as well as a shape review of circles, squares and rectangles.
Recylce paper garbage by making "Stuffy" the trash bag snowman, as a classroom decoration, which will help students practice fine and gross motor skills.
Looking for a quick and easy bulletin board for January, or need an interesting winter writing prompt? Run off copies of the New Year's resolutions template on white construction paper. Students complete the writing prompt, then trace their hand, color it, and add some rings decorated with flat-backed rhinestones. For that extra bit of pizzazz, glue their photo somewhere on their work, and mount on their favorite color of construction paper.
Packet includes 3 mitten Venn diagrams including 1 where students compare and contrast 2 animal characters from the story The Mitten.
Run the mitten pattern off on a variety of colors of construction paper. I wanted mine to have a red mitten with a green cuff + a green mitten with a red cuff, so I ran off two of each page (one on red and one on green). Laminate, trim and then cut the cuffs off so that you create puzzles for a Magic e Mitten Matching Game.
