Product Description
Do you read the story “The Jacket I Wear In The Snow?” My kiddos and I really enjoy Shirley Neitzel’s books.

They are perfect for sequencing and retelling a story too. With that in mind, I designed several craftivities that you can transition to after reading the tale.

* The packet includes several writing prompt options for older students, as well as 2 jacket patterns, so little ones can also do the craft.

* One jacket pattern is generic, which students can color, or you can run off on a variety of colors of construction paper.

* The other jacket looks like the one in “The Jacket I Wear In The Snow” story.

Pick a jacket or give children a choice, then choose a “lining” for your craft.
There are 5 options, plus a blank version to dream up something else.

* The first “lining” has pictures of the story elements in chronological order, which is a fun way for students to practice the “retell a story” standard.

* The other 4 “linings” are writing prompts.
Students cut the jacket on the dashed line, then glue just the sleeves, to the “lining” creating a booklet, when flipped open reveals the pictures or one of these writing prompts:

“Here’s what happened…” (Checks comprehension. Can be written as a “beginning, middle, end” prompt, or as a “sequential list” of what happened, or as a “paragraph of summary”.)

“The jacket I wear in the snow is…” option: (Descriptive writing, adjective practice). Children color the jacket pattern to match their own coat, then describe their jacket.

“My favorite thing to do when it snows is…” option: (Short & simple. Limited to one thing.) Children write about what their favorite thing to do in the snow is, then draw a picture underneath.

“When I’m all bundled up for winter I like to…” option: (Longer, expanded, can also be a list.) Children write about all of the things that they enjoy doing when they play in the snow.

Because they are very different, you can do the “retell the story” picture jacket, as well as the generic jacket with a writing prompt. Possibly one for class and another for “early finishers” a fun homework assignment, or tuck in your "sub tub".

* Besides the black and white options, I’ve also included full color, so teachers can quickly & easily make a sample to share.

Completed projects make a sweet bulletin board or hallway-wall display. I’ve included several posters to use for the center of your display.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a wonderful winter!
