A Week of Snow

We started our unit on winter by talking about what you could do on a snow day.

We read the one of my favorites books ever! 
"The Biggest Best Snowman"

Check out our anchor chart on the story elements!

For writing I decided to change things up. 

We read a "Snow Globe Family"

We did a lot of prewriting for this activity.  I had the studens decide the setting of their snow globe, then they had to draw the setting with them self as the main character.  Next they used that picture and a flee map to write their story. 

I could not be how well their stories turned out!
Such great little authors.
