We read the
story The Snowy Day and discussed favourite activities.
We did a shared writing about two children playing in the snow.
The emphasis was on story structure. The children then made
their own "snowy day" books using a beginning, middle, end
format. I entered their stories and they used the paint program
to illustrate them. This was their first time using paint. We
also used a thinking map (a brace map) on Kidspiration to
organize types of winter clothes. We are still working on these.
children had great fun with this project. We have snow here for
many months and schools are NEVER closed because of weather. We
often have indoor recesses when it is too cold for outdoor play.
It was easy for us to relate to the snow theme!
Casey and Nicky rushed out of bed. They looked out the window.
It was snowing. Casey and Nicky went sledding on the hill. They
made the snow into blocks. Then they built a snow fort.
two kids jumped out of bed. They looked out the window and saw
the snow. So they got dressed. They went outside and went
sledding and made a fort. The snow felt cold. They clumped it.
It looked like an igloo. It was warm inside. Then they went back
inside and had hot chocolate! Then they went for a nap. They
slept and slept till 3:00. They woke up. And had hot chocolate.
the kids got up to look that the snow had fallen. They got
dressed. They got on snowpants and jackets. They went outside to
play. They got the sled and went sledding. They made the snow
into blocks. Then they built a snow fort.
Tim and Jimmy ran out of bed and looked out the window. One day
Tim and Jimmy they went tobogganing and they yelled, Wheee. And
they went back inside and went to the closet and then they
returned the sled. And they sipped hot chocolate.

two children ran out of bed and they looked out of the window to
see the snow has fallen over night. Sam and Hasea went outside.
Then they went sledding 18 times. Then they went inside. After
they went out they made a snow fort. Then they looked for 20
toys to put in the fort. Then they played with them. Then they
went inside and brought the toys inside too.
there were two children. They jumped out of bed and they looked
out of the window and got dressed. They went outside and it was
cold and they went sledding and built a snowman. They build a
snow fort and went skating. It was fun. Crunch, crunch went the
snow as Bill walked up the hill. They went zipping down the
hill. Then they went inside and had hot chocolate.
