First, I gave my girls the What's the Order page that shows 5 blanks for the steps for building the snowman. Then, I gave them laminated picture cards of the steps in a mixed up order. We talked about what we do first when we make a snowman and decided to put the picture of one big ball of snow in the first spot.
The girls used the picture cards to make the snowman from one round ball, to two balls, to three balls, to adding all the accessories. With my 4.5 year old we worked on transition words like first, next, then and after that.
like on this tutorial) and use them over and over again on a felt board.
Obviously, with living in Michigan, my girls have a lot of schema about snowmen and how to build them. If your child is struggling with the order, try reading a snowman book first so that they see the steps that it takes to build a snowman.
