Product Description
This 62-page resource has 31 days of Winter ELA (English Language Arts) and Math printables that are compatible with selected Grades 2-4 Common Core; click on preview to see CCSS activities alignment.

I created this packet for my blended class of high-flying 2nd graders, at level 3rd/4th graders, and above level 4th graders to work on as a countdown to the end of the month. Due to the multiple grade levels in my classroom, I need to highly differentiate so you'll find that almost all of the activities are open ended and have addition/subtraction & multiplication/division options.

These countdown packets were very useful as morning work starters, during literacy and math centers, as fast finisher resources, or printed as a fun packet for students to work on throughout the month.


Included In Your Download:
• 31 days of Winter-themed Printables
• "No Days/Not a Countdown" version of this resource. Same resource except each activity printable does not have "Day 1, Day 2, Day 3...to Day 31" printed on the corner. Instead it has the word "Date" for teachers who don't want a "countdown" packet. This gives you the option of selecting the activities to do at anytime.

Printing Tips:
Please note that this product was created in 8.5 X 11 in. paper format standard in the USA. I'm teaching overseas where the standard paper size is A4. I've been able to print on any other size paper by choosing 'shrink to fit' or 'fit to printable area' in the printer options. I've even enlarged some response activities to fit on A3 paper for group work.
