Snowman Writing

I may be sick of snow, but it is a fun topic to write about - especially with the little ones!  So, we did a snowman writing unit. At the end of the year, our students are given an SLO test to see if they have mastered the kindergarten common core standards. There is a section on the Test that asks about Frosty the Snowman.  Therefore, I decided to teach a writing unit to incorporate Frosty.

Monday:  Students started by learning about Frosty.  They listened to the story and wrote describing words about Frosty!  They also labeled a snowman.  It is really good practice for students to label.

Tuesday:  Students reviewed Frosty and made a snowman treat!  Students were able to make the snack and eat it.  This is a great way for students to practice adjectives when they get to eat the snack (use all 5 senses!).  

Wednesday:  We as a class compared and contrasted Frosty the Snowman and the Edible Snowman. We used a Venn Diagram! 

Thursday-Friday - It took us two days to write our final writing piece.  The students had to write a sentence about each snowman and then write how they were the same.

Hope you enjoyed our snowman writing! The kids did a great job!!
