Reinforce a variety of standards, with these snowman puzzles that cover upper and lowercase letters, counting forwards and backwards + skip counting by 2's, 3's, 5's, and 10's. Make a set to use as puzzles for an independent center, by printing, laminating and trimming the pieces. Also print and laminate the blank grid. Students use it to place the puzzle pieces on top.
You can make these into puzzles, laminate and use each year, or run off copies on green construction paper and have students cut up their own puzzle. I've provided a blank grid for you to run off on white construction paper, so students can place the puzzle pieces on it, or have children cut and glue their pieces to a sheet of white or black construction paper, turning this "craftivity" into a lovely bulletin board. Your caption can be: TREE-mendous Work By ___________________'s (teacher's name) kindergarteners (grade).

Slider strips for shapes, upper and lowercase letters; numbers to 30, skip counting by 2's, 3's, 5's and 10's + counting backwards from 10 to 0 and 20 to 0. If you don't want to make a slider, create a "belly booklet." Have students write letters, numbers, words, their name or whatever else you are working on inside this mini-booklet that's glued to the elf's tummy.
