Winter Read Alouds

I love books about winter and snow. Click on the link below to read about three books I posted about last January.

Books About Winter

Here are some more of my favorite books about snow and winter:

Owl Moon has beautiful pictures. This is a wonderful story that lends itself to a visualization lesson. Read aloud the book twice without showing the pictures. Have students return to their seats and draw a scene from the book. After sharing the pictures and talking about them, read the book again sharing the pictures.

There is nothing better than a snow day. Snow is all about a boy and his dog as they watch the snow continue to fall, piling on the streets and houses, until the entire city is blanketed in white. Have students write about what they love to do on a snow day!

Thomas Snowsuit is a humorous story about a boy who does not want to wear his snowsuit. His mother, teacher and principal try to get him to wear it, but this stubborn child will not listen to them! This is a great book to discuss how the little boy behaves. This stroy lends itself to a great discussion about text tot self connections!

The Snow Bear is a sweet story about a polar bear who loses his Mom. His snow friends help him make a snow blanket so he can stay warm. This story has the themes of teamwork and friendship, as well as family!

What are you favorite books about winter and snow? I am always looking for a new read aloud for my class!

Happy Reading!
