Snowmen at Night Lesson Plans are here!  My class has always loved this sweet book.   We begin the week’s lesson by reading it over and over.  Snowmen at Night was written by Caralyn Buehner and illustrated by her husband, Mark Buehner.  The rhyming in the text makes it fantastic for strengthening our phonemic awareness and the illustrations are spectacular!

We loved the photo of the snowmen on the sleds.  So we added a little STEM activity for the Science, Math, and More units.

The students have a planning sheet they can use to plan and test out their sled.

  1. Good evening Mrs. Willis,

    Would you please clarify the following for me: I see that this page says “Free File – Snowmen at Night Lesson plans”. Am I reading this incorrectly because I have been looking for the lesson plans and can’t locate them. I know it is late and that may be the problem. I love your many activities and lessons am thankful that you share them. Please let me know. Thank you!

    1. Hi Suzanne!

      Yes, there is a free file. You just need to scroll to the very bottom of the blog post. There is a box where you enter your email address and then it is sent to your inbox. It has been downloaded several hundred times, so it looks like the tool is working correctly. Can you double check? Let me know if you continue to have problems. 🙂

  2. This is a random question- I’m a new Kindergarten teacher. I used to teach 5th grade so this is a whole new world to me ?. I’ve been researching what guided reading looks like in kindergarten and I noticed that you have time for word work within your guided reading lesson. My school has us plan for a whole hour of phonics and a separate hour of guided reading. Since we have an hour devoted to phonics, would you suggest to still do word work within my guided reading lessons still?

    1. Goodness, an hour for phonics. I guess my first question is, “How are you differentiating your hour of instruction?” In every class I’ve worked and consulted in, I have found that you start the year with students who know all of their letters and sounds. BUT you also have students who do not know the difference between a letter and a number. I have found that providing targeted word study (phonics) in a small group provides a better opportunity to teach to their zone of proximal development. Hmm… an hour for whole group seems like you would only be able to reach a fraction of your students and may not be the best use of your instructional time budget. I TOTALLY understand this is something that was handed to you, so you may not have the power to change it. But it would be worth a conversation with your instructional leaders. I would start my conversation with the data on where my students are with their phonics knowledge.

  3. Hi!
    I’ve tried a few times now to get the file, but it has come through. I’ve been checking my SPAM, and there’s been nothing from you. Not even your newsletter. 🙁 Help?

    1. I just sent you an email. Your email is being “bounced” which means there is a firewall or filter that blocking any of my free files from reaching you. When this happens, it means you may need to use another email.

    1. Hi Carla,

      There is a link to a free activity at the bottom of the blog post. Just add your email and it will be sent your way. The links to the lesson plans are included in the blog post if you are interested in purchasing them.
