Our class chose 50 Below Zero
by Robert Munsch for our Frosty Readers activity. The story
was about a boy named Jason who kept being awakened during a cold
winter night by his sleepwalking father. Jason was finally
able to get some sleep after he cleverly handled the chilling
situation. The story ends as Jason's mother is about to
discover Jason's remedy. BBBRRRR, since we have been out of
school due to the ice storm, we were able to appreciate the setting
of the story.
We read the story and created a
story map. Each student wrote a new ending to the story.
We learned about onomatopoeias and opened a whole section in our
parts of speech library. Each student thought of three
onomatopoeias then wrote a sentence using each one. They also
illustrated their onomatopoeia sentences. For a
"frosty" challenge, we decided to create an alphabet book
of onomatopoeias in alliterations. Below is our creation. You
will also be able to view Onomatopoeias ABC Style book and all of
our frosty activities on our webpage soon.
