Geraldine’s Big Snow by Holly Keller

Similar to The Snowy Day, this book explores snowy day activities as Geraldine (young piglet) anticipates the first snow of winter.

After reading aloud, remind students of the many activities Geraldine and her neighbors did during the snow day.  Ask students to brainstorm their own ideas and chart ideas on a chart labeled: Snowy Day Fun

Create a Snowy Day Fun classroom book.  Students work with partners or in groups choosing different ideas from the chart to write about and illustrate.  If time permits, make it an ABC Snowy Day Fun book.  Compile and keep in reading center as another useful writing prompt idea.
