Snow Day! by Lester L. Laminack

Recommended Grades: 3-5

When the weatherman predicts an overnight snowfall, the narrator dreams of all the fun he can have on his day off from school.  Children will enjoy the surprise ending. 

Lesson Idea:

Six Traits: Organization: Read aloud Snow Day! Discuss the surprise ending.  Pair it with other books with surprise endings (First Day Jitters, I Want My Hat Back) as mentor texts.  Have students use the models to guide their own writing by encouraging students to write a piece with a surprise ending.
