This teaching resource was created by me to provide students with an engaging way to respond to their reading. These reader response pages provide many opportunities for thinking and writing about the text.

*** Spin-Off Lesson*** is a perfect way to engage students in literacy activity. In this book, I created a spin-off lesson which is a science experiment about snow. In the story, Peter puts a snowball in his pocket and he is surprised later when it isn’t there. The children find this amusing and Peter a bit silly, but it is a perfect place to spin-off to a science lesson about snow, weather, matter, liquid and gas.

What is snow? And why does it melt. Included in these pages are some simple science lessons about snow. Your class can also make a graph. Class discussions about weather and snow come naturally after reading this book. Students start to see the life lessons in literature when you dig a bit deeper into the text. This “spin-off lesson” is engaging and fun; there are several pages to get you started… ask and answer questions, hypothesize, make predictions and conclusions. See snow melt! And if you are not in a place where there is snow… did you know you could make your own? Enjoying literature in this way teaches young readers to read and write with conviction.
