Everything you need to practice reading comprehension strategies with your students, using the book La vie secrète des bonhommes de neige by Caralyn Buehner! This set includes one whole week's worth of literacy activities (30-45 mins/day) to do with your students.

You will read the story each day, and then examine certain aspects of the text more closely (close reading). Your students will practice visualizing, making connections, identifying which events did/did not occur in the story, inferring, and writing their opinions all throughout the week. Lesson plans include opportunities for shared writing and individual responses.

I have included both interactive notebook and full-page response sheet options for each activity, so you can use what works best for your students.

There is also a colour poster that explains each strategy taught throughout the week. The week's lessons conclude with a fun taste-testing activity (hot chocolate vs. cold chocolate) and a snowman craft.

These lessons are great for both Kindergarten and first grade - in K, my students show their thinking through their pictures in the beginning of the year, and then add text to clarify and explain as the year progresses. To me, what is important during this time of our day are their ideas and their thinking! In first grade, your students who are capable could be expected to begin using writing in their responses right away.
