If you are looking for engaging circle activities to keep your morning meeting and story time working online or in person, this set of winter songs and story will do just that.
Your students will be engaged with fun digital songs on the interactive whiteboard for the songs or shared via video conference or through printed manipulatives they use at home or in the classroom.

These circle time activities include 3 songs with visual supports and a book about taking a winter walk with language extension questions that can help you build your staff and families' language facilitation skills.. They will help you liven up your circle time while keeping the focus on teaching a variety of skills from communication to literacy. And I've included a video walking you through how to put it all together and use it with your students.

You can use the visual supports during circle time or morning meeting. The visuals are designed to create opportunities for communication, choice making, counting, identifying names and/or pictures, comprehension, and meaningful participation. The We Are Making Cocoa even includes sequencing that you can use for cooking and independent work. In addition it contains the visuals needed to add these activities to a choice board for students to choose which song to sing.

This set can be used with the Preschool*Elementary Morning Meeting Starter Kit or on its own.


A Video that walks you through how to set up the materials and how the songs and rhymes work.

The 3 songs are included in printable and in Google Slides and PowerPoint versions for interactive whiteboards and distance learning.
