Snowflake Bentley has been THE most appropriate story to be reading these last few weeks! It's been a snowy end of January, early February and we are loving learning about what comes from the sky! I've been using Bookflix from Scholastic to show the story as opposed to reading it - the kids are SUPER into it! I pause the story, ask questions, point things out, etc. The kids are pretty much yelling to turn it back on! It's like teaching with tv! They're hooked!
Either way, if you have the paper book it's a good story too! My comprehension pack starts off with a KWL chart and leads into a graphic organizer where you can answer questions and track traits about Snowflake Bentley. We focused on character traits, and what those mean.
You can then use the writing prompt pages to write and draw about snowflakes or snowflake Bentley himself! If writing is not what you're targeting, I like to use the comprehension questions with or without cariboo for my little ones - and the big ones too as a support!
Use the beginning, middle, end and first, second, last sheets to sequence both the story and how to make a snowflake. It's nice to use the white board or a simple pencil and paper to show the steps to making a snowflake. Plus, the kids like it when you challenge them to follow the steps (hello, auditory comprehension goals!)
