The Snowy Day: Reading Adventure Pack

Source: Reading Rockets

This Reading Rockets Adventure Pack is designed to support reading activities at home. We’ve chosen a fiction and nonfiction book about snow, appropriate for a kindergarten listening level, and included related activities to encourage some hands-on fun and learning. Just assemble the packet in a two gallon zip top bag, and send home with your students. The featured books for the The Snowy Day Adventure Pack are The Snowy Day, written and illustrated by Ezra Jack Keats, and Snow Is Falling, written by Franklyn Branley and illustrated by Holly Keller. The Snowy Day, winner of the 1963 Caldecott Medal, tells the story of a young boy who wakes up to discover that a beautiful blanket of snow has fallen during the night. Snow Is Falling explores how snow can help plants, animals, and people to survive a harsh winter and thrive in the spring.
