When my students enjoy reading, I feel like I have received a gift. My primary goal as a teacher is to inspire a love of reading in my students.  I love seeing students engaged in a book - whether it be a fiction or a nonfiction book.

I am always looking for new, interesting, and engaging books to read to my students.  I use mentor texts in my classroom nearly daily, and it is my students' favorite time of the day.

One of the books I'm reading this year is The Secret Life of a Snowflake by Kenneth Libbrecht.  

This is an amazing book for older elementary students.  It has beautiful photographs of snowflakes and includes comparisons and science content, and I can teach many of the standards while integrating other subjects.  I can incorporate writing and teaching nonfiction text features while students learn about something interesting.  There is even an art activity where students learn how to make snowflakes out of paper.  In fact, I am so inspired by this winter picture book that I made a whole unit based on the Secret Life of a Snowflake!  Stop by and pick up this Freebie and don't forget to read!

My secret letter is...
