Literary Foundations: Snowman Story Building

What do you notice?
  • Making the family connection: Discuss the slide above: What do we know about this story’s outline?
  • Materials: family learning journals/paper, pencils, colored pencils, and/or crayons
  • Remind them to open their journals to the next available page and date it. Don’t forget to have them label the top of the page with today’s learning topic/skill.
  • Today’s literary connection: A Snowman’s Story
Organizing your thoughts from the first slide.
  • Guided enquiry: Discuss: What information from the Snowman’s Story slide would they list in a story map (slide above). Invite them to write these ideas in their journal (1=characters; 2=setting; 3=problem; 4=main events; 5=resolution).
  • Extension: Ask them to draft their “Snowman’s Story” into a 3 paragraph format (Beginning-Middle-End). Encourage them to illustrate what would be their favorite scene.
