Winter Activities for Kindergarten

We have one more week left in November, and then we get a whole week off for Thanksgiving break! I LOVE my job and my class a lot, but breaks are good for the soul! When we come back from our break, we are going to be immersed in all things winter! {Well except for the weather, thank goodness, because this Cali girl can’t handle the cold! Just ask my besties! ;)}
Literacy Centers
{the following activities are from my December Games and Centers}
Short Vowel Sort- we’re still working hard on the short vowel sounds! Students will read the words on the cookies and place them on the correct cookie sheet.
Snowy Sight Words- Students will pick a card from the pile and write the sight word on the correct line. They will also use these cards to play memory with a partner.

Sweet Sentences- building, reading and writing sentences with our high frequency words.

 This activity is really fun! I choose a number card and read it aloud, while the students find it on their paper. Then I tell them which color crayon to use and they color in that gingerbread kid with the correct color. After we do this all together, I put this game in centers. Now a student is the “caller” and the other kids in the center color in the numbers. They love playing teacher!
