If you are homeschooler there are plenty of fun projects that you can do at home with your children. One of my favorite winter activities is a sight word snowman. This is really a fun project for kindergarteners. To get started you will need several pieces of white construction paper. You will also need two pieces of black construction paper, two pieces of orange construction paper, scissors, glue, and a sight word list. Once you have gathered together all of your materials you are ready to get started.
First you will want to make the circle shaped snowman on the white construction paper. You can use a regular plastic bowl to make sure that your snowman shapes are the same. Try to make the circle shapes one smaller than the other. They should not be the exact same size, but they should not be too much smaller either. Once you finish making the circles, you can cut them out, and set them aside. The next step would be to draw a square shape on the black construction paper for the hat. You will also want to draw a small circle shape for the nose. Next you will want to use the orange construction paper to draw the scarf. These things can be drawn any way that you would like. Once you have all of the shapes drawn and cut out you can next add your sight words. It would be a good idea to add at least three sight words to each snowman circle. Use the remaining construction paper to finish drawing the rest of the face on the construction paper, also for the arms and hands.
Next you will want to focus on assembling the snow man. You will need to start with gluing the body of the snowman together. Slightly overlap the bottom edges of the snowman and glue them together. Next you can focus on gluing on the hat, nose, and of course the eyes and mouth. Have your child focus on putting on the face and the rest of the body. When you are all done you can hang up the snowman on the wall. Once your child learns the first set of sight words on the first snowman you can work on the next one. It is really a great way to get the kids excited about learning their sight words. This is one project that you can stretch out through the entire winter season.
