Snow Treasure Reading Comprehension
Regular price: $3.00
Bundle price:
 $3.00
Format:
 PDF

 ‘Snow Treasure’ was written by Marie McSwigan and is based on true events. A Norwegian freighter arrived in America in 1940 with a cargo of gold bullion worth $9,000,000 (at the time). The story of how the gold was loaded onto the boat, with the help of local children and their sleds, is true. Only the details have been added for embellishment.

This book is a part of the regular Grade 5 curriculum in many Canadian schools. It will appeal to anyone living where there is a snowy winter, and is a good introduction to the concepts and events surrounding World War II, without getting into gory detail and without any tragedy.

There are three sets of pages included here. The first section contains sheets of questions (four questions per chapter) which the stud...


Snowflakes Mosaics
Regular price: $1.50
Bundle price:
 $2.00
Format:
 PDF

Make your empty Kleenex boxes into a pretty winter craft! Instructions, tips, four small templates and four large templates are included here. Here is a fun way to re-use thin coloured cardboard from common household packaging!

Larger cardboard mosaics can be completed by younger children, and smaller ones by older children, teens or adults. Use your completed mosaic to decorate the cover of a notebook, make a card, as a wall hanging, or give it as a gift!

Cardboard Mosaics and other similar crafts (such as cut and paste puzzles) are excellent tools for developing fine motor skills. This in turn can improve a student’s performance in other areas such as playing a musical instrument, writing neatly, attention to detail, patience, and the ability to concentrate fo...


Winter Literature and Composition
Regular price: $2.00
Bundle price:
 $3.00
Format:
 PDF

Here are six pieces of writing about Winter, and six different writing assignments to go with them! Topics include: a narrow escape on an icy bridge, skating alone on a winter’s night, descriptive poetry in four-beat verse, the drama of inadequate winter clothing, a place in the mountains where it is always winter, and a ridiculous winter ‘tall’ tale. Writing assignments vary – from summarizing events in the third person, to writing a poem in four-beat verse, to describing a winter rescue, to writing a deliberately absurd story involving melting snow. An image of a photograph entitled Ice One is included to be used as decoration on the student’s notebook. 

Literature & Composition collections are suitable for students who are ready to read ...


Winter: A Reading Comprehension Collection
Regular price: $3.00
Bundle price:
 $4.00
Format:
 PDF

This collection contains 27 stories and poems on the theme of ‘Winter’ (including one or two selections suitable for Christmas and New Year), and a handful of ‘Winter’ colouring pages from Medieval woodcuts. Following each selection is a Topic of Discussion: a question which requires the student to think about one element of the text they just read, to form an opinion about it, and to express and defend that opinion.

Younger students will benefit from the effort spent reading (either in their head or out loud) and then speaking with a parent/teacher or in a classroom setting about the Topic of Discussion, in a free style.

Older students can benefit from using the Topic of Discussion as a starting point for a written assignment. I recommend...

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
