Materials:  Book: All You Need For A Snowman Snowman Pieces made out of paper with magnetic tape on the back,  Hat, Scarf, Buttons, Carrot Nose.

Objectives:  Students will begin to identify and use special concepts (first/last, over/under, etc.) c. Demonstrate use of vocabulary in oral language to express ideas and events (Colorado Standards:  Oral Expression and Listening, b. Begin to identify and use special concepts (first/last, over/under, etc.) c. Demonstrate use of vocabulary in oral language to express ideas and events) 

Assessment:  Standards will have been met when students are able to express ideas about where to place the different parts of the snowman.

Procedure: Read book, All You Need For A Snowman.

SayNow we are going to talk about how to assemble a snowman.”  Students use specific language with details needed to know where to put each piece. The teacher moves the pieces to where students say to move them.  When instructions are not explained correctly, purposely put the piece out of place.

Snowman Activity 2: Snowman Craft

Tell students they can use what they know about how snowmen are built to draw a snowman for our winter bulletin board.  Students draw a picture of a big snowman on chart paper.  Cut them out and add these to the winter weather bulletin board.

Snowman Activity # 4: Snowman Puppets

Students use white paper or cotton balls, scrap paper, popsicle sticks to make snowman puppets.

The Snowman Pokey  – Sung to the hokey pokey, each student moves a little snowman puppet to the words:

You Put Your Snowman In, You Put Your Snowman Out

You Put Your Snowman In And You Shake Him All About!

You Do the Snowman Pokey and you turn yourself about.

That’s what it’s all about (Snowman Pokey!)

 

You Put Your Snowman up, you put your snowman down

You put your snowman up

And you shake him all around!

You Do the Snowman Pokey and you turn yourself about.

That’s what it’s all about (Snowman Pokey!)

Goodbye Song

Here is a cute goodbye song that I found on the internet.  It’s sung to the tune “Frere Jacques.”

Goodbye Song

Goodbye children,

Goodbye teachers,

It’s time to go,

Our day is done.

Wave goodbye to everyone

We’ll see you all tomorrow,

When we learn and play

With our friends.
