Last week, I was browsing through Pinterest and found this adorable snowy sentences activity that came across my newsfeed. I pinned it, then printed it only to realize (right before laminating) that the sentences were a bit too easy for 2nd graders. That was a close call! So, I decided to create my own winter writing activity with more adjectives to make the sentences longer. I also wanted to create a resource that could be prepped once and used for several years!
And, if you’re interested in finding out how you can get this resource for free, keep reading.
Four sentences with word cards for students to manipulate. They read the words and sequence them to create a sentence that makes sense. Also included is:
- Sentence recording sheet to match the pictures on the word cards
- Blackline masters to save on ink and money (print on colored paper or cardstock for more durability)
- Additional recording sheet for students to create their own snowman sentences to match each selfie picture
With older grades or students who are advanced in reading or writing, you may want to differentiate the activity. You can have them look at the picture to write their own sentence. In 2nd grade, we require them to write sentences that are at least 7 words long. So, this would allow them to get creative!
If you teach younger grades (K-1st), this resource can be customized to the needs of your students too!
- Instead of “The plump snowman rolled down the giant hill,” the sentence could say “The snowman rolled down the hill,” for example.
And that’s it! However you do this Snowman Selfie Sentences winter writing activity is up to you!
I hope you enjoy this resource!
