The unit I put together for Brave Irene includes reading comprehension and writing materials. You can check that out if you’re interested by clicking the unit image.
This unit includes before, during, and after reading activities. The activites build upon the author’s craft and language used. The book is a wonderful mentor text for writing, and the unit guides you through using the book in that way.
Like Snowflakes Fall, it’s a beautiful description of what winter looks and sounds like. It’s great for teaching sensory words and poetic language and for modeling word choice and voice.

I’ll leave you with one last winter teaching tip. Have you tried snowball writing? Snowball writing is a way to write collaboratively. Students write the beginning of a story, crumple the paper, and throw it at a friend. The next person writes the middle of the story, and the final student writes the end. Imagine the stories you’ll hear.
