Winter Wonderland Language Arts and Math Unit


It's already time for me to start thinking about going back to work in January.  For the first month back, I am going to focus on everything winter!  I made a Winter Wonderland Math and Language Arts Unit to go with the themes of snowmen, hot cocoa, and everything winter!  I did an adorable hot cocoa math unit last year, and I wanted to make some things that could also be used for a hot cocoa language arts unit.  I hope this is something that you could use too!





This is a 50 page document, full of ideas and resources that are all about the winter!

Snow-
Pgs. 4-5:  Describe snow
Pgs. 6-7:  Writing sheets to write about snow
Pg. 8:  Draw 4 activities you can do on a snowy day
Pg. 9:  Roll a dice and color the number that you roll

Snowmen-
Pgs. 10-11: Describe a snowman
Pgs. 12-13:  Writing sheets to write about snowmen
Pg. 14: Label the snowman
Pg. 15: Put the words in ABC order
Pg. 16: Draw the steps of how to build a snowman
Pg. 17:  Roll the dice, color the number that is one MORE than the number you rolled

Hot Cocoa-
Pg. 18-19: Describe cocoa
Pg. 20-21: Writing sheets to write about cocoa
Pg. 22: Roll the dice and color the number that is one LESS than the number you rolled
Pg. 23: Cut and paste the cocoa sentence and draw a picture to match
Pg. 24: Draw the steps of how to make cocoa
Pg. 25:  Compare and contrast lemonade and hot cocoa.

Centers-
Write the Room:
Includes vocabulary cards, where the students can record the words onto a recording sheet.

Count the room:
Includes cards with different number sets on them (numbers 10-20).  The students record how many objects are on the card and write down the number.

What Number is in the Middle?
Students look at the number cards to record which number is missing in the middle (numbers 11-20)

What Letter is in the Middle?
Students look at letter cards to record which letter is missing in the middle of each set.

More or Less?
This includes three different activities or deciding if the picture cards have "more or less."

Winter Syllable Count
Students will use the picture cards and sort them by the amount of syllables.  Includes an assessment.
