If you’re reading any wonderful winter books, grab these winter notebooking pages to capture your child’s written narrations. I don’t like to complete regular book reports with fill in the blank options.
I do encourage written narrations to record what my child has remembered from books or stories that we’ve read. Narrations give your child the freedom to come up with their own interpretation and they can pick out what they think is the most memorable portion of the story.
With my second grader, I will sometimes write the narration down for him. I record his words, whatever, he wants to say. Most of the time he can do this himself but some days are a struggle, so I don’t want to lose any of his thoughts.
I’ll also do copywork or dictations using notebooking pages because I like to encourage them to draw as well. Sometimes, they can’t express exactly what they want to say in words but can express it better in pictures.
Recommended Winter Books for Kids
Read a favorite winter book and have your child write a narration or summary using the notebooking pages. Have them draw a picture of their favorite scene from the book.
