Happy Wednesday! It’s finally starting to feel like a little like winter here in Arizona, so I thought a snowman read aloud would be a perfect book to read this week. For this weeks’ Literacy Snack Idea, we’re reading, Sneezy the Snowman, by Maureen Wright.
“B-R-R-R-R! AH-CHOO! Sneezy the Snowman is cold, cold, cold. To warm-up, he drinks cocoa, sits in a hot tub, stands near a warm fire–and melts! But the children know just what to do to build him up again–and make him feel “just right”. ” The students love when Sneezy attempts to warm himself with some silly results.

At the end of the book, Sneezy enjoys an ice cream cone when he’s feeling just right, so for our snack this week we’re having ice cream cones!
ice cream flavor of your choice, I did peppermint to go with the holiday season.
ice cream cones
Give each student a scoop of ice cream in their cone. It’s a little silly and unexpected for the students being so chilly outside and that makes it so much more fun!
After they’re done with their cones, I made a fun worksheet for them to work on. They will recall the order of when the things happened in the story. I leave the book up front in case they need to go back and reference it.
