Please note: This is a scanned picture of the best illustration in the book to make this lesson successful(I have tried other illustrations in the book and this is the best one) and to save time so you don't have to stand in line at the copier. :)
Materials: SNOW by Uri Shulevitz, black paper, gray crayon, white chalk, and picture of boy and his dog (included in the file)
1.Have children color the dog and boy with any colors they choose. Then cut out.
2.Then have the children put it to the side.
3.The children will have black paper, gray crayon, and white chalk in front of them as you read the story. I usually read each page 2x, not showing the pictures or even the cover of the story. Great for listening b/c the first couple pages, "tell" how many snowflakes to draw.
4. In the book there are other characters besides the boy and dog and I haven't yet had a child try to draw them, but I do mention that we are concentrating on setting not so much those characters.
4. When done with the book, have the children glue the dog and boy on to their picture.
**Perfect book for every child to feel successful with their art!
