1-2-3 Come Do Some Winter Clothing Activities With Me
This “getting dressed for winter” - themed packet, is jam-packed with all sorts of quick, easy & fun activities, which practice a variety of standards.
There are easy-peasy activities for PK, as well as more challenging "Print & Go" ones for K-1st, which makes it simpe to mix & match to fit the various levels in your class.
The packet includes:
* Label the winter wear “color me” worksheets, with matching full-color posters for the teacher.
* Picture cards to practice sequencing, ordinal numbers and the correct order to put things on. Can be used as a poster, center or game. Has matching BW bookmark.
* "Color Me" ordinal number, fill-in-the-blank (boy & girl) worksheets, with full-color posters for the teacher. I've also included an ordinal number, whole-group assessment.
* Picture & word cards for an ordinal number game.
* A graphing extension.
* 3 Emergent Reader Booklets:
1. ”Let’s Go! Let’s Play In The Snow!” is packed with lots of Dolch sight words. Practices ordinal numbers.
There’s a full color teacher’s edition plus 2, BW options for students: a “color me” one, plus a “color, cut & glue” version.
2. “Wintry Colors” With lots more Dolch sight words. Students read the simple sentences; add end punctuation, trace, write & color the color words, then color the picture.
3. “My Winter Clothes” is my personal favorite, as it makes a sweet keepsake. Students complete the sentences by filling in the blanks with the color of their clothing, then coloring the pictures to match.
I've included a matching “Let’s Go!” label-me poster worksheet option.
As your kiddos get ready to go out for recess, snap their picture and then print them off, so that they can trim & glue to their worksheet and label it.
As you can see by my samples, these turn out absolutely adorable, which makes for a sweet bulletin board. There's also . . .
* A variety of worksheets which practice: contractions, plurals, alphabetical order, word recognition, compound words that begin with snow, ordinal numbers & color words.
* 2 sets of pocket chart-size, picture-word cards for winter clothing. Use on your word wall, as flashcards, or cut in half to make puzzles.
* Word games:
word scramble worksheet, winter clothing word search, “How many words can you make using the letters in jacket?” game, with a colorful 15-word answer key.
* 8, colorful “Dress the Child” cards, with a variety of outfits. There are 4 boy & 4 girl options which cover various ethnicities.
My Y5s absolutely LOVE this independent center.
Use the matching BW options as a color, cut & glue worksheet.
* A set of colorful clothing cards for sequencing, patterning, & Memory Match or “I Have; Who Has?” games.

* 21, “Dressed for Winter” number puzzles, which practice counting forwards (1-20), backwards, plus skip counting by 2s, 3s, 5s, & 10s. One set comes in BW so children can color, cut and make their own; the other set is different and in full-color so you can use them for an independent center activity.
I’ve also included some tips, tricks and posters to help motivate your students to want to get dressed as quickly as possible, saving your sanity and precious teaching time.
There are also 3 snowman posters to use in your bulletin board displays of student work.
Woo hoo! There are two featured FREEBIES today, which are both from the jumbo "Winter Clothing Activities" packet.
The first one is a set of boy & girl "Color-me" number posters which will help reinforce sequencing numbers and counting from 1-20.
The other FREEBIE is the "This is how we get ready!" poster. Reviewing these steps with my Y5s was a HUGE help in getting them independent.
Although many valiantly try, only to waste more time taking things off and retrieving a stuck boot in a pant leg. Some just stand there totally befuddled. I hope you find the poster useful and have as much success as I've had with it.
Well that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by.
The only good thing about the rainy weather today, is that it will hopefully wash away all the dirty, ugly snow blobs left here and there. I am so looking forward to spring and some much-needed, and energizing sunshine! Wishing you a fun-filled day.
