fun and frosty! (print and go activities)

I really don’t mind cold weather, as long as there’s snow on the ground. I love sledding, drinking hot cocoa, building snowmen, and wearing winter attire! I still get so giddy when schools are closed for snow. I am as bad as my students. Some things never change, I suppose!

Over winter break, I spent all most of my days in pajamas. I won’t even dare to tell you the number of times I showered (or didn’t). Ha! I did, however, work on some fun and frosty winter activities for the next few weeks. Confession: I really created these activities with the hope that if we continue to do wintery activities, we will send wintery weather our way. Wishful thinking, perhaps?

I tried to create activities that require very little prep time and VERY little ink. In 2012, I spent ENTIRELY too much time prepping activities and ENTIRELY too much money on ink. I’m trying hard to utilize my time and money a little better this year. 

The only thing I did print in color was this binder cover to make the binder look pretty help keep myself organized. For real, I am trying very hard to be organized. All I did was print the packet in black and white (SO MUCH CHEAPER), punch holes in it, and put it in the binder. This will save me so much time when I am in a hurry to find an activity.

I plan on using lots of the activities in this packet alongside my current math and language arts curriculum. I’ll also be using some of it for homework and warm-ups!

My students will love learning how to write a friendly letter with the help of Frosty!

image

For this activity, students will use snowballs (aka: marshmallows) to help them solve part-part/whole math problems. They’ll literally eat this activity right on up! 

image

Fun morning work activities…my kids will love these!

image

I know this game will be an instant hit with my kids! For this game, students will work with a partner to see who can be the first one to build a snowman based on their subtraction sums. I can’t wait to do this with my kids!

image

Write a wintry story using this word bank…EASY PEASY prepping!

image

This adorable snowman craft will accompany the snowy stories perfectly. It is super simple to prep and won’t take long to complete. You and your kids will love this craft!

image

Students will practice doubles problems on a “snow much fun” scavenger hunt.

image

These snowy story problems will be perfect for morning work and homework. My kids will love seeing the snowy clip art! Seriously, the little things make them so happy!

image

You can find all these activities at my TPT shop. I hope they help make January and February a little bit warmer! Or, maybe they’ll help bring wintery weather your way, as well? Haha!

Need MORE winter resources? In case you’re interested, I bundled all three of my winter packets  (Fun and Frosty, There’s Snow Place Like Home, and Visualizing in Winter) together to make one big package! You’ll be set for the rest of winter with this bundle!

  10. OKay, so I most definitely started a snowman pack that has a "spin a snowman" activity in it! I haven't gotten around to finishing it, but just thought that was too funny!

    Great minds :)

  11. Do you have a separate binder for all of your units? I STILL can not figure out how I want to keep mine organized. Currently, the cards are in plastic shoe boxes hahaha.
