Let's build a Snowman
by Richard Graham

Let's build a snowman
Let's build a snowman
Let's build a snowman
Let's build a snowman

A snowball for his body
A snowball for his head
A carrot for his nose
A scarf around his neck.

Let's build a snowman
Let's build a snowman
Let's build a snowman
Let's build a snowman

2 stones for his eyes
2 twigs for his arms
Stones for his buttons
A twig for his mouth

Let's build a snowman
Let's build a snowman
Let's build a snowman
Let's build a snowman

Oh no, we forgot his hat!

In the classroom or at home ........

This is a cool little song to teach some body parts and get the kids into some more complex sentences, all with the magic of Christmas!

Simply mime putting on each part as you sing the song. Or if you are really quick, try drawing it on the board in time to the music!

Recommended Game

Use the Body Building game but with a snowman theme!



Recommended Game 2: We need... Card Game

Print out the special mini cards below.
1. Pick a card
2. Say "We need ... " plus whatever is missing on the card.
3. Get a point!



Or use any of the Mini Card games with these cards.
They work great for balancing out mixed groups as you need not only the English skill but also the visual skills to figure out what is missing!

Or try this worksheet (the 2nd page of the pdf below), the kids roll the dice and colour in the correct part if they can say it!
