Interactive Reading: The Snowy Day-written by Ezra Jack Keats

Today's book chosen by my two year old was, The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats.
When I read her stories we tend to interact whether its through puppets, drawings, or even painting. (Sometimes even short plays) She seems to really enjoy the interaction. Today we did some interaction using her Magnetic Easel board.
Materials I used for this simple activity were:
Craft paper
Pieces of magnetic tape
laminate sheet
We created the little boy Peter, a snowman, a few buildings with snow  packed on the roofs, snowballs, and snow hills.  It was so much fun! My daughter was Peter throughout the story, and she even made him throw a few snowballs. We did some counting, color identification, and made peter walk up a few snow hills. :)
