Need for a Snowman by Alice Schertle, Barbara Lavallee
snowflake fluttering down-that's all you need for a snowman..."
story, All You Need for a Snowman, students in Mrs.
Canning�s classroom chose to study descriptive language and
writing using a sequence. First, the students charted the
different items a snowman might have. Next, they brainstormed
descriptors for each of the items. Finally, they chose five
different things to include on their snowman.
students had written out the sequence of what their snowman
needed using Kidspiration, they then followed their own steps to
draw decorate their snowman.
phase is to share the same snowman template with another class
and have them follow the students� steps to see if the two
snowmen end up looking alike!
