Snowman Glyphs

Do you need a fun way to teach your child how to follow directions?  Well, glyphs are a perfect way to teach this important skill.  A glyph is a pictoral way to show data.  The snowman glyph below is a fun activity to do as a family.  Collect data, create your snowman, and then compare!

Here is another glyph activity from my daughter's 2nd grade cyber-teacher...
Snowman Pattern


Using the Snowman printout above-Follow these directions to make your snowman.
 

•If you were born in the months January, February, March or April you will color the scarf pointed to the left.
•If you were born in the months, May, June, July or August, you will color the scarf pointing straight down.
•If you were born in the months September, October, November or December you will color the scarf pointed to the right.

•If you are a boy, color the snowman's scarf red.
•If you are a girl, color the snowman's scarf blue.

•If your last name begins with the letters A, B, C, D, E, F, G or H you will color the Top Hat.

This activity can be adapted for younger children with simple directions and less detail. 

Hope you enjoy your day!
