stART: How To Build A Snowman



For our stART project, we read How To Build A Snowman. It's a cute, simple book with different textures on each page. It's an excellent book to use for Izzie's "speech therapy" and Mac loved the touchy feel parts.


Izzie created an adorable little snowman (printable) while reciting the book.


This week, she also completed several other Snowman activities, including...

Number Sequencing (printable) (1-10)

1:1 Correspondence (printable) with snowflake stickers

Fine Motor Skills: Matching clothespins to correct color

Dot Art (printable)

Simple Patterns (AB and ABB) printable

Snowman Game: Matching Hats

Writing Practice (printable) I decided to turn this into a File Folder activity (laminated), so she can easily wipe off the washable marker and try again. She's doing well with straight lines, the curvy lines are still a little tricky!


Scissor Skills printable


Izzie has been having the hardest time learning how to use scissors and we have been practicing for months with several different types of scissors. Well, I finally found a Melissa and Doug scissor set that she can easily manipulate! She is so excited to be cutting....everything! So, this snowman scissor skill page was a huge hit, even though she is nowhere near cutting the dotted lines, she still had fun "just cutting"! (No idea why I didn't get a picture of her using her new scissors...the blue pair is her favorite.)

  10. Textures books are always popular in our house and you have come up with so many great snowman activities to complement this book.

    My daughter has also struggled with using scissors, we have bought many different types. She is just starting to get the hang of it and now gets less frustrated with cutting. Isn't it wonderful to see them excited as they master a new school.

    Thank you for dropping by my blog. It makes my day to see people taking the time to comment.

  11. What a great idea to laminate the writing practice pages & put them in a file folder!! I'm stealing that idea ;)

    Looks like a fun week!
