S
nacks can be good for you! A healthy
snack is easy to make from things
in the kitchen. Sometimes I just mix up
raisins and peanuts to make my own trail
mix. I like to add granola or fruit to a cup
of yogurt. My favorite snack is a piece of
cheese on a cracker.
Yesterday, I made my own happy
face snack. I got a cup of applesauce,
cinnamon, some raisins, and a rice
cake. I mixed a little cinnamon into the
applesauce. Then I spread it on the rice
cake and used the raisins to make a smiley
face. It looked cute and tasted delicious!

Directions Read the following passage. Then fill in the graphic organizer below.
S
aturday morning is my favorite part of
the weekend. First of all, I can sleep
in because there’s no school. Sometimes
I just lie in bed and daydream. Then, if
the weather is nice, I get dressed and take
my dog Pounce for a walk. Sometimes
my big brother takes us to the dog park so
that Pounce can play with the other dogs.
On days when it’s cold or rainy outside,
I snuggle into my fuzzy blue robe and
watch cartoons. When my mom gets up,
she and I make blueberry pancakes with
whipped cream.
