Developmentally appropriate Winter literacy centers for the preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten classroom! This resource is perfect for all developmental and cognitive levels of early childhood. The centers are fun, engaging, and offer challenges and reinforcement of basic skills.
This resource is set up with 3 levels of developmentally appropriate Vocabulary centers for the early childhood classroom. Every class is different, every student is different, so this resource gives you the option of starting out slowly, building on what your students know, and offering a challenge as skills are mastered.
Level 1: Gingerbread Vocabulary Matching
This beginning level will reinforce the vocabulary being taught during your Winter Unit. Students look at the pictures, name the picture and find the match! You may choose to use all of the matching cards or just a few. Make sure to talk about the Winter activities and concepts you have been learning about during the week.
Level 2: Bundle Up! Winter Clothing Vocabulary Game
This activity builds on the first activity by using some of the same vocabulary words. This activity has a focus on what we wear in the winter and opens a discussion to the question of ‘why?’ do we need to bundle up. Why do we need mittens? Why do we need to wear boots? This game gets kids talking about winter weather, temperature, and how it directly affects them each day of the season.
Level 3: Winter Activity Vocabulary Sort
This center activity builds on the matching and clothing activity. Using some of the same vocabulary words, students will sort the activities by where we would participate in them. Some activities can be placed on different sorting mats, while some can only be placed on one. This requires some critical thinking and expands knowledge and opens up thought processes
Choose the centers that are just right for your students!
Winter is coming and it is...FUN!
