You can see a video of the book here...
On the left we dot markered the letter Ww and colored the wagon. On the right we did
some letter Ww recognition activities.
On the left we matched shapes and talked about the picture and what sound they heard
at the beginning of each picture. On the right we circled letter Ww's, circled pictures that began
with letter Ww and traced letter Ww's.
On the left we followed directions to color the letters or Ww pictures and then at the bottom
we colored spaces with W green and w blue. On the left we glued pictures into the water
that began with the /w/ sound and we traced letter Ww's.
On the left we dot markered the path of Ww's to help the spider find his web. On the right
we colored each circle that had a Ww.
On the left we made our own letter Ww's and we found pictures that began with the /w/ sound.
On the right we put a six piece puzzle of a wagon together.
To introduce the book we did two activities.
We talked about activities we like doing in the snow and then dictated and drew our favorite.
We talked about what we wear on a snowy day and drew us in some of those clothes with a
dictated response as to what the picture shows us wearing.
Some of the art projects we did with the book...
We drew in our faces with crayons, used my marker to trace names (not washable), and then
we waterpainted ourselves on a snowy day.
We fingerpainted with blue, added cut snowflakes which they could color, and
put dabs of glitter with glitter glue onto the paper.
We made winter necklaces
Some of the concepts we worked on...
On the left we colored things you can do in the winter and circled our favorite thing. On the right we
did a pre-writing activity from Homeschool Creations.
On the left we did some critical thinking by looking at the picture and deciding whether a sled, ice skates, roller skates, or shovel would best go with the picture. We also drew a picture of what they could make looking at the picture (this one is a snowman). On the right we did some predicting ~we decided which picture would come next after I read the sentence.
We sorted winter vs. summer clothes from Homeschool Creations "The Snowy Day" pack.
We sequenced the story.
We also did a lot of number 5 activities.
A number 5 activity sheet.
and a few more activity sheets.
Hope you enjoyed "The Snowy Day" as much as we did. Next up... "Mrs. Wishy Washy's Farm".
