Winter Wonderland

When we return from Winter Break, I like to do a unit on Winter. My Kinder-Hoppers love snow, but it is usually too cold for us to really enjoy it. I really try to make the unit a lot of fun!

All the printables can also be found in one file here...

Snow Unit

Books we love...

My students LOVE creating these snow people after we read Snowballs. They work in co-operative groups and really have to make decisions together. I take out as much "stuff" as I can so they can decorate. It is truly an activity that they adore. The final product isn't always pretty or cute, but the experience they gain from completing the task is nothing short of awesome!

We make this graph...

Each month we make a math journal page for our memory books. We made snowmen using our fingerprints in white paint. Then we decorated them using more paint. Once they were dry, we used felt snowflakes for the final touches!

  1. I love your winter unit! I didn't find it in time to use this year, but would love to save it for next year. I tried to download the files, but it said they were put in the Scribd archives which has a fee. Is there any way to get them without paying the fee? I'm just curious because all of your other files download for free. Thanks!!

  2. Hi Kari,

    I didn't even realize there was a Scribd archive, yikes! I changed some of my settings on there, so my docs aren't going to be included in the archive. Please let me know if it is fixed :)
    Sorry for the inconvenience.

  3. Thank you Shannon! It is fixed, I really appreciate you taking the time to do that. I totally love all of your files! You have the best ideas. Thank you again for sharing! :)

  4. Thanks so much, Shannon! I love your winter unit!!

  5. Thank you for the wonderful winter freebies! I truly appreciate your generosity. Hope you are having a wonderful winter break with your new bundle of joy!
