All I Need for a Snowman {Free Download}


Five free snowman leveled writing pages to go with “All You Need for a Snowman.” Snowmen and winter brings about a sense of magic for students! Integrating reading about snowmen is a great way to encourage writers to write!

With this free download of “All I Need For a Snowman,” young writers will be encouraged to think, plan and list. Here’s my tip on engaging writers – start with great books!

One of my favorites is to use the (affiliate) book All You Need for a Snowman by Alice Shertel. It has a simple message that students feel like they can replicate in their writing piece.

Teach Junkie: Need for Snowman

There isn’t anything simple about the book as a whole, however. You can use the illustrations to talk about use of color to show snow {It doesn’t have to be white? Say what?} or engage students in the adding of details.

By first adding detail in pictures, detail in writing will follow! {Maybe not all in one day… but with practice} To get you started, I’ve included 5 kinds of templates to meet your needs.

There is a completely blank space to fit in the MOST details possible or to allow younger writers less conformity. You could choose the boxed list to help young writers get {at least} 3 ideas down onto paper or choose from two styles of lined paper.

Last but not least, a full page of the snowman to encourage using large detail or perhaps watercolor backgrounds {feel a project coming on?}

Writing Paper Templates Included:

  • Full photo
  • Open space
  • 3 boxes
  • 3 lines
  • 5 lines

Let your students’ imaginations soar and let their writing skills shine {or in this case glisten – like the snow!} If you download this, be sure to share this post or comment!

Not in the mood to sing winter’s praises? What about connecting to Alice’s book “All You Need for the Beach“? Now you’ve got me thinking sunglasses and lemonade!
