SNOW DAY ACTIVITIES

Oh, the weather is S-N-O-W-Y in some parts of the country right now! Or it might be at some point this winter. Do you have plans set aside for things to do when there’s four feet of snow outside (we’re looking at you Buffalo, NY) your front door? Here are five activities that will keep your kids busy. Be sure to read the book that goes along with each, and for extra learning opportunities, complete the Before, During and After sections.
No Two Snowflakes Are Alike (Max and Mo Make a Snowman) | Beanbag Rhyme Time (Sneezy the Snowman) | Memorize a Poem (It’s Snowing! It’s Snowing! Winter Poems) | Catch Snow Crystals (The Story of Snow: The Science of Winter’s Wonder)

More than a coupon
Oh, the anticipation! There is nothing more gratifying than waiting for your very own one-topping, Personal Pan Pizza from Pizza Hut. This is especially true when it was earned by reaching a reading goal. The BOOK IT! Reading Award Certificate is more than just a coupon. It’s a tangible high-five, fist-bumping moment to celebrate when a child reads their heart out. It reinforces the positive nature of reading and keeps them motivated to not only read more, but to make sure that reading stays fun!
