(similar to Hangman)
Select a spelling word, as in hangman. Indicate
the number of letters by sketching blanks on the
board. Beside the blanks, draw a snowman (or
woman) complete with features and accessories.
(You want at least ten distinct parts in the
snowperson--body, eyes, nose, mouth, buttons,
hat, scarf, etc.) Let students take turns
guessing letters. When students guess a letter
not used in the word, erase one part of the
snowperson. Continue to play until a student
guesses the word or the snowperson has been
For variation, create a list of sentences using
students' vocabulary words. Write one sentence on
the board, leaving a blank where the vocabulary
word should go. Sketch a snowperson above the
sentence. Let students guess which word best
completes the sentence. If an incorrect word is
guessed, erase one part of the snowperson. See
how many sentences students can complete before
the snowperson melts away.
Here is a picture of part of a reproducible book
from pur CDROM. You may try to make your own or click
here to learn about the CDROM.
Each page in the book
has a snowman in it. The student choses a color
to write in the blank and then colors that part
of the snowman.
I like your _______ hat.
I like your ________
I like your ________
I like your _______
and so on...
Here is a center idea.

You could make cutouts
of snowmen. Program one with a contraction and
the other with the two words the contraction
makes. The student matches the two.
Here is a cute writing
activity. The students pick a winter word and
write a cinquain about the word. They type up
their finished product. Print it and place it on
a doylie. Then have the students make a snowman.
The poem goes on the belly.
I got one of these ball boards at Oriental
Trading. I use it in many different ways during
the winter months.
I place point values on
Inner red ring = 50 points
Inner green ring = 40 points
Outer red ring = 30 points
Outer green ring = 15 points
Spelling - we break off
in two teams and form two lines.
One person from each team stands at the front of
the room. Those two people are given a word. Then
they start spelling the word together.
For example, the word is snow. One student from
each team is up front. Team 1 student says /s/.
Team 2 student says /n/. Team 1 student says /o/.
Team 2 student says /w/. Team 1 student gets to
throw a ball at the target. Then their score is
recorder on the board. The two players get to go
to the back of their lines and the next two come
up front and repeat with a new word. If one of
the students was to say the wrong letter. The
other team wins the throw. If you have played
sparkel - this is very similar.
Math - Each student in
the class throws a ball. We graph the colors they
Math - Each stundent
throws the ball twice and adds up their two
This glyph come from the book :
Graphs, Venns, & Glyphs : Hundreds of Great
Data Collecting Activities to Build Real-Life
Math Skills. I have
modified it a bit.
Have students cut three
snowballs to make a snowman. Then have them
decorate their snowman as follows.
Ear Muffs - I am a girl
Hat - I am a boy
On a cold day, I'd rather...
dotted mouth - drink hot chocolate
regular smile - drink eggnog
frown - eat soup
mittens - I love to play in the snow
gloves - I'd rather stay inside
In winter, I'd rather...
purple = go sledding
red = build snowmen
blue = throw snowballs
When it snows, it's best when school...
Triangle = is closed
circle = is delayed
square = closes early
Solid color = my favorite season
multi colored = not my favorite season
Here are 2 more glyph
