The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats
I have created this pack to go along with one of my all time favorite books by Ezra Jack Keats, The Snowy Day. I enjoy this book so much because there are so many teaching opportunities in it. This is a book that I will read multiple times in one school year for various lessons. These activities are meant to be used after reading the book to your class. I’ve thrown in a few 2nd grade math sheets and coloring sheets with a snowy theme, just to make sure if you wanted to use it for emergency sub plans, you’d have a day full of activities! However, I love teaching with this book so much that I wouldn’t leave it up to a sub! I wouldn’t want to miss it!
