Winter is for Snow

Even though the temperature s in the 50's here in Georgia, I am going with a winter/snow theme in my speech room this month. We have been reading books about winter weather and decorating the speech room with snowflakes.

One of my favorite books we have read is Winter is for Snow by Robert Neubecker. It is a great book for discussing feelings and perspective taking. In the story, a little boy is delighted to see that it is snowing outside. His little sister is not as enthusiastic and states that she would rather stay inside and watch television. However, by the end of the story, she is having a blast in the winter weather.

After reading this book to my students, I had them complete a graphic organizer to illustrate how the little girl feels at the beginning, middle, and end of the story.

(The student's paper here says "She was grouchy. She was curious. She was happy. She loves snow")

We also took pictures of the illustrations in the book that show how the little girl is feeling. We used a picture collage app to show how her feelings change throughout the story:

I planned to make paper snowflakes today as well, but ran out of time. We will just have to do that later in the week! 

If we can't have snow outside, at least we can enjoy winter-themed books and paper snowflakes in the speech room.
