Really looking forward to FaceTime story time with my 3 month old granddaughter today. They live in the Midwest and I am in Texas.

I‘d never read this picture book classic before this year. I loved the simplicity and the sense of wonder, and I also adored all the rich colours in the illustrations. Love the iconic red snowsuit.

The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats is a realistic fiction story that won a Caldecott Metal. This story is about a young boy named Peter that wakes up to find heavy snowfall. Excited to play, Peter goes outside in his red snow clothes. Although Peter is too young to play in a snowball fight, he finds his own fun in making snow angels and snowmen. This story would be great for an author study because there is so much to learn about Keats and how he

emilypalkovich came from nothing and became successful. A link to a website with more information about Keats is https://www.ezra-jack-keats.org/section/about-ezra/. A good UDL strategy for this story is to provide options for self regulation because promoting expectations will help students create a better author study. An EL strategy that would work well in pair with this is number 11: place language in meaningful context, because it would be used for an (edited) 13mo

DrSpalding When you see stories that can be used in other content areas, use them! As soon as you see snow in the title, this would be an excellent science read aloud. We did this a few years ago with students from the creative school and bought the fake snow to use as a science experiment. Sadly children in Florida do not get to see snow often and in fact I did not see it until I was 30 years old! 13mo

The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats is a RF book and a Caldecott Medal Winner. It is a book about a little boy waking up to snow in his neighborhood and exploring. He packs some snow in his pocket to use the next day but wakes up to find it gone! Luckily it had snowed even more that night. Sweet book and I love the illustrations! Good for young readers.

ReaganT http://homeschoolcreations.com/files/Snowy_Day_Printables.pdf This link provides over 20 worksheets and activities based on the book good for a kindergarten or 1st grade class. This activity uses UDL principle 3.1 Activate or supply background knowledge. An ESOL strategy that can be used is 4. Link lesson topic to students‘ prior knowledge. 13mo

Sdemps This book cover offers beautiful imagery and I can see why this book has won a Caldecott award. The website that you provided is one that teachers could get great use out of. 13mo
DrSpalding You are correct that this is a wonderful read aloud for young students. A few years ago we invited preschoolers from the creative school on campus to the teaching Academy. We read aloud this book and then provided them with fake snow for a science lesson! Helpful resource. 12mo

The current view from my window. I have to leave for work in an hour. I can honestly say, I‘ve never looked forward to anything less. My BIL texted me this morning that our parking lot at work hadn‘t been plowed. But that was around 6-I‘m hoping they‘ve gotten to it by now. Pretty sure the snow is deeper than my boots.

The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats is the perfect RA to help students during winter months to visualize wonder and joy of the first snowfall. Follow Peter as he puts on his red snowsuit and ventures out to make a snowman, snow angles, and even a snowball to bring home. In 1963 Keats received Caldecott Medal for his beautiful art work. Make sure to read this RF and share in the magic Keats creates. #ucflae3414su20

Mazzole18 UDL principle 3.3 which will guide information processing and visualization. ESOL strategy 30 -Encourage the use of diagrams and drawings as aids to identify concepts and seeing relationships.Here is a great website to make fake snow to authenticate the story. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/351912450595110/ 2y
Nkaufmann Nick, I think this is the perfect book to read around winter time. Students will also love making the fake snow. Great job. 2y
DrSpalding Several years ago, this was the jumpstart read for the record book. We actually did make fake snow! The four and five-year-olds we worked with on campus, loved the hands on aspect of the lesson. This is a classic story that can certainly be used when teaching about various seasons. 2y

The Snowy Day winner of the Caldecott Award is a RF picture book that is about the adventures of Peter on a snowy day. The authors illustrations and choice of words is what really bring the book to life which makes it a great RA book, it can also be used while teaching science in the classroom. UDL 3.1- Activate or supply background knowledge. ESOL Strategy 4- Link lesson topic to students‘ prior knowledge.#UCFLAE3414SP20

Kayla_C Yes Jenny, this book is a great book to read prior to teaching students about snow. You can have them create snow as in activity in the classroom. 2y
DrSpalding As I shared in class this is one of the most checked out books at the New York public library! This book certainly would be a great book to use in science.

The Snowy Day is a RF that perfectly encapsulates childhood. As Peter goes through his snow day he encounters snow mountains and creates snowman. This Caldecott Winner captures the simplicity of childhood while also showcasing the amazing imagination that children possess. This picture book is excellent for a RA, as teachers could truly make it come alive with their voice and facilitate text to self connections. #UCFLAE3414SP20

Kyleigh_J The book‘s website has a great lesson plan to encourage student comprehension of the story and key vocabulary words. https://www.ezra-jack-keats.org/lesson-plan/a-flurry-of-activities/ This resource will satisfy EL 5 teach technical vocabulary supporting key concepts as the teacher will teach vocabulary words to the students in the lesson and UDL 3.2 highlight critical features and big ideas as the students will learn key features of stories.

umbrellagirl @Curiouser_and_curiouser The Snowy Day is cute. They made the illustrations into postage stamps for Christmas a few years ago. 2y
Curiouser_and_curiouser @umbrellagirl I must be living on Mars. I'm going to go look it up 😄 2y
Curiouser_and_curiouser @umbrellagirl aawwwww, just watched the story being read on YouTube, very cute. I probably haven't seen it because we don't have snow here in Melbourne 😉 2y
