g is for glue top nose OR s is for snow person

i’ve always looked at glue tops and thought they should be used for something.  why not a carrot nose?

here’s what to do:

read snowballs by lois ehlert

notice all the things used for facial features

talk about how a snowflake has poky edges

shred white paper

paint the back of a paper plate with glue

sprinkle the shredded paper on (so it’s poky-looking)

press down on the paper

shake off the extra

wash your hands if you don’t like glue on them

choose 2 milk lid eyes

choose a hat cut from cardboard (from the wagons’ boxes)

let your teacher use hot glue to make sure they stick

decide if your snow person is a boy or girl

sing this song to the tune of  “twinkle, twinkle:

snowboy (or girl or dog or cat, etc), snowboy, where can you be?

i built you yesterday when you were here with me

i made you tall (or small) and i made you fat

i gave you a nose, two eyes, and a hat

now my snowboy has melted away (sing this part very slowly and with a sad face)

but the snow is falling and it’s time to play! (sing this part very quickly while clapping)
