The best part about creating book companions has been pulling out all the treasured tales I use to teach my kids skills and concept while taking a deeper peek at the text.

I'm going to share how I plan to use this unit.

Begin building background knowledge with the topic of snow. Record information gathered in a KWL. An alternative is to discuss snowmen with a Have, Can, Are chart. Throughout the week, keep track of details from each story with a matrix. The matrix will be a large component of learning on Thursday and Friday.

Building vocabulary background each day will assist your language learners. The format remains the same for each book: vocabulary poster, student journal, and interactive page to save on copies. An additional blank card is available and made editable. I decided the book Snowmen All Year didn't have the depth of vocabulary and opted to review the matrix by Friday.

Reread the story to assist in reviewing interactive skills pages. Included are essential questions, flip flaps for note taking, and a student page for informal assessment. Each of the above options are provided for rhyming and compound words.

You'll find engaging comprehension response sheets for compare & contrast, story maps, plot, adjectives, making connections and a response to literature.

Develop writing through the week with a fun published paper with a craftivity. Provided are poster images for a shared writing.

Depending on their background knowledge, I've provided images to create a functional story on How-to Build a Snowman and How-to Decorate a Snowman.

If time provides or the following lesson, allow time for kids to work with graphic organizer. Optional writing pages for published stories or elaborating on the graphic organizer is found at the end of the packet.

Follow up writing with a fun craft. Allow students to select a setting. A template on how to color the backgrounds is provided. Students will color setting, assemble and attach their snowman.

Please check out the preview to see visuals of the entire document! I also have a --> Blog Post <-- with a peek of my week and how I'm using this file!

Happy Teaching,
