The great thing about the book on Winter was the live web cam that we checked every day at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium to check in on Winter and her friends, Panama and Hope. Click the link below the book jacket to go to the live webcam! The link will take you to one camera view. Once you are there, you can click on other views/cameras. Super Cool!
We have to say that this book was also long and had lots of words!! Therefore, it took us several days to read the entire book. We were amazed at how our kiddos became engrossed in the topic and truly excited about Expanding Their Vocabulary and Tuning in to Interesting Words!!
It is so amazing to hear our kids use vocabulary from the story like saying that they are exhausted at the end of the day or they got injured or wounded on the playground!! What was really funny was when one friend said they needed new water for their water color paint because theirs turned murky!! Awesome!!!
Anyway, Winter's Tale provided us with a great opportunity to work on Story Elements. Hope you can use the idea below. Just click on the picture below to grab teh story map :).
