Winter Book Snippet

Today I'm home again because it's a snow day! We have more snow than I can ever remember having, which of course is SO exciting. All this snow has me in the mood to read snowy-themed books with my boys before bed. One we read last night is one that we've read several times already. I usually think of it as a simple book to read simply for enjoyment. I love turtles, and the main character is a lovable tortoise. But last night when I read it, I started seeing more teaching ideas- ways you could take this simple book and turn it into a lesson. So today I'm giving you five different ways you could take this simple book and apply some meaningful comprehension skills. I would love to make this "Winter Book Snippet" a regular thing, too!

I hope you got some good ideas here and I hope even more that I can make time to do more "book snippets" for you. ;) I love digging deeper with lovable children's books!

Time for me to go sledding again!


  1. As always I find myself reading your posts in order to find some freebies. I have looked all over the Internet to find some well-structured essays online to teach to my kids. You, however, have made my day with all the cool worksheets you have provided here. Additional thanks for the explanation about the lessons planning. I hope my kids will show some great results of character analysis and expressing their opinion. It would be hard not to do well when you have these cool activities to do in the classroom.
