Welcome to Writing Wednesday!

  Today we’re going to start with this funny photograph of a snow person and snow dog! Isn’t it great? We would like you to tell us in your own words what snow animal you would build if you could.

Think about your favorite animal, and tell us why you like that animal so much. Use facts, concrete details and other information to convince us why your snow animal would be the best one ever!     

When you are finished writing, click on the yellow "comments" link at the bottom of this blog post if you would like to publish your snow animal writing for others to read. Or, share with your classmates, family or friends!

Happy (snowy) writing!
