Snowmen At…

Who loves Caralyn Buehner books besides me?

SnowmenatNight
After my two week vacation, my students will enjoy some fun activities based on all three books.

Kindergartens will respond to the stories, write the room, label, describe, and write sentences. Each story comes with a writing activity that can be made into class books with colored or black and white covers.



First and second graders will respond to the stories, write words in ABC order, sort nouns, verbs, and adjectives, put together compound words, and play a reading comprehension / grammar game. All of the activities contain words from the stories.

I am so excited for this unit because Caralyn Buehner books always excite my students and bring out their creativity!

I would love to give away one of these units to a lucky follower. All you have to do is comment below and tell me which is your favorite Caralyn Buehner book. Also, tell me the version of the activity you would prefer (kindergarten or first and second grade.) I will choose a random winner tomorrow. Good luck!

*Update*
Congratulations to Robin Smith! 
She has won the first/second grade unit!

  15. Oh my goodness my kids have fallen in love with Snowmen at Christmas. We're doing a reader's theatre of that story for our Christmas Program. I'd love the 1/2 grade version. I teach 3 grade in rural Alaska so I'm always looking for ways to differentiate my activities.

  43. I have to laugh because until Monday, I had never heard of these books. I was with my kiddos in their art class (doing some of that dreaded testing)and the art teacher was reading them Snowmen All Year!
    The kiddos LOVED this story and making these cool snowmen. Now I am wanting to purchase these books. I would love the kindergaten activity!
