‘The Snowman’ lesson plan
These activities are designed for use with children aged 3 – 6 who have limited experience with English. There are several activities described – pick the ones that suit your students best. Students will learn basic vocabulary from the story, as well as gaining experience with the use of the present simple tense to describe attributes (‘my snowman has a nose’), and the present progressive tense to describe temporary attributes (‘my snowman is wearing a scarf’).
‘The Snowman’ vocabulary cards
A set of vocabulary cards showing images and words for almost all of the major nouns that are used in the story. Use these to preteach vocabulary and to support children’s retelling of the story.
‘The Snowman’ retelling frames
This set of differentiated retelling frames helps children of all language levels retell the story of The Snowman. Very young children can draw scenes from the beginning, middle and end of the story, beginning readers can read and illustrate key scenes from the story, and intermediate writers can give their responses to their chosen parts of the story.

I strongly recommend buying a copy of The Snowman. It’s a wonderful book that children will enjoy retelling and re-reading. It is available on Amazon.com, as well as the official Snowman site. If you are unable to obtain a copy, you can watch the animated version online via youtube.
