Cat and Mouse in the Snow

This lesson goes along with the cute winter story:
Cat and Mouse in the Snow by Tomek Bagacki

I read the story to my Kindergarten and First Grade classes. 
I then went over attributes of cat and mouse faces with the students. 
On grey construction paper the students drew a cat and mouse with pencil.  They could also add on a hat and scarf if they wanted.  The goal was to introduce them to zooming in or cropping a subject in their composition.  
They traced with a turquoise construction paper crayon.  Then they added snowflakes on with a white crayon.  This was especially cute when they drew a snowflake on the animal's nose or falling on to their face.  
During the next class we painted with watercolor.
