Winter Ideas, Activities, and Freebies for the Classroom

January 4, 2020
My students love playing in the snow.  I am busy planning activities around snow this week.  I am sharing with you some of my favorite winter ideas, activities, and freebies for the primary grades.

Directed Snowman Drawing

My students love to draw.  Here is an easy directed drawing of Olaf that I did with my students.  We drew Olaf with black crayon and use blue watercolor for the background.

Winter Grammar Word Search Freebie

Word searches are fun and exciting for students! In this winter grammar word search resource, students identify the nouns, verbs, or adjectives in each sentence. Then, they find it in the word search. These are perfect for review or early finishers.

Sneezy the Snowman

          My students love watching Aunie’s House.  She does an amazing job reading the books!
Here is a great video explaining how snowflakes are formed.

Winter Mystery Pictures

These winter math mystery pictures will help keep your students engaged and motivated while reviewing second-grade math skills. They can be used for homework, extra math practice, or for early finishers. Students will love discovering the mystery picture. There are a total of 10 mystery pictures.
Second math skills covered in this winter mystery picture set include:
2-Digit Addition & Subtraction
3-Digit Addition & Subtraction
Skip Counting
Balancing Equations
Mental Math

Snowman Riddles

    I need to do a quick 2-digit addition and subtraction review with regrouping with my students before going on to 3-digit addition and subtraction.  I like making math fun with these winter riddles.  Students discover the answers to each joke by solving 2-digit addition and subtraction problems with regrouping.
