PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Come along for a challenging lesson and fun extensions with Ezra Jack Keats’s 1963 Caldecott winner, The Snowy Day.

I use this lesson with my 1st grade advanced readers. 2nd and 3rd graders should be right on target as well. Got a gifted kindergarten group? This will be an especially tough challenge for them but promises to stretch kids’ imagination and critical thinking skills across 4+ grade levels.

Pre-reading activities warm up your students for critical thinking questions as we “count up” Depth of Knowledge. After we’ve stretched our literacy skills, it’s time to address the visual-spatial abilities of our 21st Century Learners with a lesson about bird’s eye view perspective which includes the student activity sheet, What Does the Bird See?

Notice all those footprints Peter makes in the snow? Let’s learn how to make our own “footprint mysteries” from a bird’s eye view perspective! This lesson includes four footprint mysteries for your students to solve and some handy guides for drawing and creating their own mysteries.

Finally, students share their mysteries, challenge their classmates to solve them, and participate in a non-threatening public speaking opportunity straight from the Common Core.
