The Next Snowy Day (Jennifer Smith, Carlin Springs Elementary School, Arlington, Virginia) Fourth-graders read The Second Snowy Day, written the year before by third-grade English learners as a tribute to Ezra Jack Keats’ beloved classic. They then worked in groups to brainstorm, write and illustrate their sequels, which proved as imaginative as their predecessors’. Some stories detail new adventures, while others envision the characters grown up…and even married!
