TED 8650 Children s LiteratureTwin Text Winter is for Snow by Robert Neubecker, 2013Rationale I put these two books together because they are both about snow The book Snow describes snow, the types of snow, snow dangers, and melting Winter is for Snow is about a boy that loves snow and his sister hates snow He describes all of the fun activities that they can do in the snow, and now she loves snow too.Text Structure The book Snow features description and cause and effect What snow is, types of snow, snow dangers, and melting are discussed, as are the effects of different types of snow situations The back of the book holds the glossary, index, books to read, and websites to visit.Strategy Application After reading Snow and Winter is for Snow, students can create a Venn Diagram comparing and contrasting the two books The facts and tidbits from Snow can be compared and contrasted with the activities and winter events from Winter is for Snow.Book review citation for Non Fiction Book 2012, March April Library Media Connection. This simple book describes the wonders and dangers of snow, identifying different types of snow, and explaining what happens during a blizzard or an avalanche The large photographs show the beauty of snow but also how it can make life challenging I especially liked that the book closes with a short text block telling readers about what happens to all the snow that piles up when things warm up. 1 Blizzard by John Rocco, 20142 This tells the story of John Rocco as a child while growing up on the East Coast There were several inches of snow that would fall, and blizzard conditions The first day they played outside, by the fourth day the plows hadn t cleared the roads They were unable to get out to go to the store he decided to walk to the store to get supplies for this family On his way, he would stop at neighbor s homes, and they would ask him to pick up supplies for them as well On his way home he stopped at each home to drop off their requests I would share this book with the children, especially the map that is in the middle There are so many enriching activities that we could do in the classroom.3 They use question and answer and description in the text.4 I would use webbing as a strategy, in the text it describes that each snowflake is different I would also have the children make their own snowflakes that we could hang up in the room. Nonfiction Text Snow, copyright 2012 This book talks about the definition of snow and the different types of snow The book explains what a snowflake is and how every snowflake has six sides but everyone looks different In the book it also explains how it needs to be freezing for snow to stick to the ground There is also dangers of when it snows a lot like a blizzard and how it can sometimes be dangerous I would pair this with the twin text Snow by Doctor Seuss This book is about a snow day the children making snowballs If a child read the nonfiction book snow then they would know that wet snow makes the best snowballs because it makes the snow stick together Some of the terms they would understand better from reading the nonfiction book Snow because it give multiple definition throughout the text and would be very helpful when a child reads the fiction book Snow. This is a gorgeous bi lingual book explaining the science of snow through short text and photographs In clear and simple text, topics like types of snow, snow dangers and melting are explained There is a brief glossary and an index, simple introductions to these two research tools.
