The Snowy Day FREEBIE

I love The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. I use it every year with my students to teach cause and effect. If you do not have the book, you can find the read aloud online here

This year, we made this anchor chart and filled it in as the story went along. We listened to the story the first time all the way through and then paused it to discuss the cause and effects the second time through. 

Afterwards, my students matched each cause to the correct effect. For the younger babies, I suggest color coding these. I copied the causes on blue paper, and the effects on white. 

Next, we added Peter to the top of our causes and effects.

These are always a favorite of mine every year. 
....and the best part is...this activity is FREE in my store! You can download it here


  1. Thanks so much - I love how you added "be" in front of the "cause" to help them understand it better - great idea that I'm going to "borrow"!
