Building a snowman and counting by 5's

We were lucky enough to get about 2 inches of snow yesterday.  It looks really pretty, but it isn't enough for my kids to go out and build a snowman with.  Luckily I have these fun little  snowman packs in my TPT store!  Your students will get some much needed practice for counting by 5's and 10's, and building word families, while they build GIANT snowmen.

The finished snowman is about at long as my kindergarten kids!  Look closely in the picture, their is a marker laying next to the finished snowman.  It really is huge!  They have so much fun with these.

This is the recording page for students to write their 5's!


  I have this in my math centers.   A couple of my students decided to make up their own challenge.... a race to see who could build their snowman the fastest.  Since there are two separate snowmen to build, this works out great.  After they build their snowman, they get to add the cute accessories.  My girls really love this.  There are also recording pages for students to write their numbers inside of the fun little snowballs so they have something to take home and show their family.
