Who doesn't love snowmen?! Even here in central Florida, we love our snow friends at this time of year. That makes this week's math lit text just about perfect.
I used this book with my third graders are a few weeks ago during our multiplication unit. It was a springboard for problems with a factor of 6 -- the snowmen had 6 buttons -- and after working together they wrote story problems in their journals. I'm planning to revisit the book in January using this video:

I'll be giving students one of these snowman pictures to glue into their math journals and write a problem for. I also have a page of snowmen without buttons so they can design their own.
