FIAR - Katy and the Big Snow
We kicked off our Summer homeschooling experiment with "Katy and the Big Snow" written and illustrated by Virginia Lee Burton. It probably wasn't the best choice to row a book about snow during June. Grom and I talked about it. Since it never snows where we live, we decided it was ok.
It's a nice story of a snow plow who saves the day after a big storm hits the City of Geopolis.
Here's a slide show of the lapbook we put together.
Alongside Katy, we read some fun books...
Snow Sounds by David A Johnson (has a snow plow in it)
This Place in the Snow by Rebecca Bond (another snow plow)
Snow by Manja Stojic
I Am Snow by Jean Marzollo
Snowy Weather Days by Katie Marsico
I found a great audio version at the libray. We listened to it a lot in the car.
In addition to Five In A Row, Grom has math (Funtastic Frogs), critical thinking, phonics (Click N Read) and handwritting (tracing sheets).
It was a fun row.
