Students get a fun lesson in thinking differently with One Snowy Morning by Kevin Tseng (Dial). I won’t give away the story, but let’s just say that the animals see the mysterious pile of snow in a whole new way….
For your chance to win this week’s prize, submit a comment to this blog by Thursday, January 23, and let us know if you’ve built a snowman yet this year. One lucky teacher will be randomly selected to win this book! Congratulations to our lucky winner Barb!
Speaking of building, here are some great freebies that you can build on in 2020:
Want to know if a video will be helpful—without having to watch the whole thing? Try SnackVids, a free service that quickly generates a transcript of the video. You can then scan or search to find what you need. When you click on a term, the video jumps to that section. Handy! Try it at snackvids.com.
Tap into a ready-to-use set of activities and demonstrations (called Gizmos) to get students exploring math and science. A free account gives you access to 20–40 Gizmos and lessons, plus previews of other Gizmos too. Give it a try at explorelearning.com.
I haven’t yet built a snowman this year, but I’m heading to Pennsylvania soon so there’s hope!
