This packet was designed to use the books, Snowmen At Night, Snowmen All Year and Snowmen At Work-for a week or 2 of having Snowmen at SCHOOL!
There are 5 comprehension/response activities, including Big Idea, using illustrations for more information, Venn Diagrams comparing the books, favorite part of the story response and a retelling. I also have a template for a snowman retelling, using snowmen outlines to retell one of the books.
There are various writing activities to complete as well---such as can, has, is maps for snowmen; how to build a snowman; what I know about snowmen. Also 3 writing responses to the 3 books are included as well.
There are also 4 activities to review/teach adjectives, as well as notes on how to use it in your room.
Last, there are 3 activities, but it's a week or more of work related to the shades of meaning standard 1.L.5d
Everything is aligned to the Common Core Standards for first grade.
I just added Essential Question posters that address the main skills taught in this packet!
