When teaching I love using literature every chance I get to introduce a topic. Over the years I have found that by using literature in my lessons... it increases interest, background knowledge, and helps provide for interesting classroom discussions.
In the area where I live...we have had LOTS and LOTS of snow days. I decided to take advantage of this and turn it into a fun and interesting lesson...that the kiddos could relate to. :)
This kit includes:
* a lesson plan
* literature (I use the book "Snow Day" by Moira Fain...however any snow day book from your classroom library can be used
* template for art activity
* graphic organizers
* modified graphic organizer for struggling writers
* thematic winter writing paper (posted on my TPT store)
I hope that your students enjoy this activity as much as mine!!!
