Winter Retelling Journals

January 24, 2015

My students having been busy reading winter stories.  We live in Southern California so if we get snow, it is a big treat!  This winter has been extremely warm so it doesn’t look like we will be getting any snow this year.  We read The Mitten by Jan Brett and wrote in our retelling journal.

Next, we read the story called The Biggest, Best Snowman by Margery Cuyler. It is an adorable story where  a little girl is told she is too little to make a snowman.  With the help of her animal friends, she builds the biggest, best snowman and proves her family wrong.   We discussed with our partners the beginning, middle, and end of the story.  Once again, we  wrote in our retelling journals.

We ended our busy week making these adorable snowman which was a two day project.   I love the colors they used and they had a blast making them!
