Build Language by Building a Snowman: Prepositions and Following Directions
Our Building a Snowman activity is the perfect winter-time activity for targeting expressive use and receptive understanding of prepositions in addition to following two-step directions. This material is quick, simple, and fun!
- Snowman Parts
- 3 large snowballs
- Carrot nose
- Sun for “melting” the snowman away
- Winter scene for placing the snowman
How to Prepare and Use?
Arrange the parts of the snowman in a random order. Use the included instruction sheets to prompt your client to practice prepositions and two-step directions.
- The first sheet features two-step directions in a “First – Then” format that clearly outlines each step of building the snowman.
- The second sheet features two-step directions accompanied by prepositions such as “before” and “after” that require a higher level of cognitive understanding (e.g., “Before you put the hat on the snowman’s head, put the snowman’s body together.”)
This activity requires your client to have knowledge of early concepts such as shapes (e.g., circles) and body parts (e.g., arms).
