This week we will read:
The Jacket I Wear in the Snow by Shirley Netzel.
Students will create a "Me" person to describe the different winter clothing they wear in the snow.
We read The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats.
I have been teaching my students about story elements and retelling, using the terms beginning, middle, and end. I had my students create a mini book with a piece of construction paper folded in half and copy paper. They had to illustrate the cover and label each section to identfy the characters, setting, tell what happened at the beginning, middle, and end of the the story. They also had to tell what their favorite part of the story was. I will post pictures of the finished products tomorrow. Grab a copy of the page headers here
