Snowman Glyphs

During the last week before the break, you know that time...the time you are just trying to hold the kids at bay and not kill each other...I decided to take on this project.

Operation Snowman Glyph


Smart move, too.  It kept the students engaged (aka...busy) and everyone was happy :)

I knew I wanted to do something with snowmen because I could leave that up after the holidays (and maybe even through February).  So, naturally, I started with Pinterest.  I found the idea for a snowman glyph.  Too cute, right?


Snowman Glyph idea from Angela Wynn

How could I make this with my students, yet keep it standards-based for 4th graders?
We had just completed a poetry unit.  So, we made diamante poems to write on their bellies.  They turned out soooo adorable.



You can find the snowman glyph at my TpT store here.














 My kiddos were so proud of them, too.  I gave them the option of hanging them up inside the classroom or outside and they all shouted "OUTSIDE" so we could show them off!
