Snow Sisters! Two Sisters, One Snowy Day by Kerri Kokias

Recommended Grades: 2-5

Just like snowflakes, no two sisters are alike.  The heroines enjoy a snow day in their own unique ways independently, but then reunite for a surprise! 

Lesson Idea: 

Mentor Text; Six Traits of Writing – Word Choice:  The use of clear, succinct language, coupled with beautiful illustrations makes Snow Sisters! an excellent model for teaching word choice. Read through the story and ask students what they notice about the use of language and the organization of the text.  How do the pictures enhance the minimal text?
