Easy items to add to Lesson Plans for Snowmen at Night
One of the things I love to do around this time of year is dig out my lesson plans for Snowmen at Night! My kids and I have had so much fun with them over the years, that I knew I had to share them with you. I read it to my class pretty much every year. It is adorable and they absolutely love it! This book is a perfect addition to your activities in winter during December, January, February, or even March depending on where you teach.
1. Snowmen at Night writing activity that boosts critical thinking
One of the best Snowmen at Night writing lesson plans that boosts critical thinking starts with this anchor chart where students brainstorm what they remembered about what the snowmen did. I also like to have students work together and write their ideas on post-its or to make it more fun, snowflake shaped sticky notes . You can have students free-write or use the prompt from Glyph Girls.
2. Snowmen at Night writing activity to build enthusiastic connections
After doing a brainstorm with your students, they can work on more writing activities to build enthusiastic connections by building a story together. Students can take turns adding their own ideas to a class story. This is a very effective idea from Teaching with Love and Laughter.
3. Instantly turn snowmen drawings into fun writing solutions
My students loved turning their snowmen drawings into fun writing solutions. I give them black and white construction paper to create their own snowmen. We also use fun things like sparkle pieces, pom poms, google eyes, and foam pieces. If you need a nice set of craft items, check this set out. My students loved this! They even enjoyed writing about what their snowmen do at night.
These are some pictures of the creative process going on.
Here are a couple final products!

6. How to make snowmen into a brilliant math solution
This is a great idea for how to make snowmen from Green Bean Kindergarten, and image from Miss Egatuk’s DK. Spell students’ names with snowballs to create their own snowmen. Place each “name snowman” on a large piece of paper lined up horizontally. This creates a graph where students can determine who has the longest name, shortest name, same length, etc. It’s a great hands-on Winter math activity!
Don’t miss these great movement activities in winter!
We created these great movement activities in winter to keep our students engaged and having fun while they learned. These popular games go along with our snowy units!
Students love to play these games and they get them up and moving, and if your weather is as bad as mine, you need something for them to be engaged in learning as they get rid of some of that energy! We have also included fun winter manipulatives so they also make great math centers! Some teachers like to tape the cards on the walls around the room and have students record their answers on the recording sheets that we have also included. There is a teacher guide with ideas on how to use the cards.
We just put them in our brand new store on sale for a limited time! Get all 4 games in one bundle . Check them out here.
