Our class listened to the story about The
Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. We decided to rewrite the
story in our own words as a shared experience. In the story that
we heard the main character was a boy named Peter; in our story
the main character is a boy named Angel.
when Angel woke up in the morning he looked out the window. He
saw a lot of snow coming down. He saw very deep snow on the
ground. He also saw a lot of snow on the cars.
Angel had to get
dressed for school. He put on jeans and a red shirt. He also put
on a sweater. He put on socks and shoes. He put on his jacket,
his hat, his scarf and his gloves. His mom drove him to school.
When his mom
took him to school Angel saw snow on the grass and then he
remembered that he forgot his book bag. The teacher talked about
our homework and then we said the Pledge of Allegiance. We did
Center Work and then we heard an announcement on the loud
speaker. We were told that we had to go home early because there
was a lot of snow on the ground and more snow was coming. Angel
was happy to go home early because he wanted to play in the
When Angel got
home from school he prepared to go outside to play in the snow.
Angel decided to put on a snowsuit. He also took off his school
shoes and put on warm boots. He put on new gloves, a hat and a
scarf. He went outside and he played.
He made a family
of snowmen. He made one snowman to be the dad and one to be the
mom. He made two small ones to be the children.
Angel saw other
children outside playing. He saw a girl named Jaslidia. She was
a pretty girl and she wore jeans. She had on a pink coat and a
white hat. She had on pink mittens and a pink scarf. She also
had on pink boots.
Jaslidia were friends. They played together in the snow. They
had a snowball fight and it was fun. When they were finished
playing they went home to their families.
When Angel went
home, he took off his wet clothes and put on dry clothes. He
watched television while drinking hot chocolate. Angel found his
books from the library and decided to read with his mom and dad.
They read the story about The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack
Keats. The End.
