After the books I gave a quick demonstration about tearing paper to make a snowy ground and then how to make the snowmen for their pictures! The main focus of my demonstration was to remind and encourage them that their snowmen will not be perfect circles. We tore the paper instead of cutting to give it a more snow-like affect.
The second class period the students added all the colored details - scarves, hats, kites, leashes, sleds, fishing poles -- whatever they needed to add to make their picture make sense!
