The Snowy Day - Ezra Jack Keats

The Snowy Day is a level J on the Fountas and Pinnell reading level scale. The Snowy Day is about a boy named Peter who realizes that it has snowed while we was sleeping. To celebrate, he puts on his red snow suit and goes outside to play. He runs into some challenges though, like being hit by a snowball by one of the older kids, but he makes it through and dreams that the sun came out and melted all the snow. When he wakes up he realizes that it snowed again, and relived his adventures like the day before. You could read this to your students a day after a snow day, and ask students to draw or write about what they did or would do in the snow. You could also ask students to describe what they would wear if it was snowing.
