Winter Learning Fun

We have been reading One Snowflake at a Time, The Biggest Snowman Ever and Snowballs.  The children have enjoyed listening to all of them but they have really enjoyed Snowballs because of all the different type of items the book showed to make a snowman and even a snowcat.

Snowmen Props to help bring stories and songs alive.  I think I had just as much fun making them.

It only snows here about once every ten years so we substituted the snow for paper snowballs and a pretend snowball fight.  

Counting and Write Snowflake Mats 

Snowmen Art Children Style.  

Letter Sorting Mats

Say, Trace and Write Mats 1 to 20

Play Dough Fun, just add sticks, bottle tops, buttons and scrap fabric.  Let children create what they want, but I am sure some snowpeople will appear.  

Say It, Count It, Write It Math Mats are one of the children favorite games that we play.  This one is a hot coco mug and the children roll the dice identify the number, count out the marshmallows and write the number.  These are always on the top of my list when it comes to teaching children how to count and recognize numbers.

  1. I'm guessing the snow unit is even more exciting since you rarely get snow!! Thanks for sharing those great ideas. Renee
