I love this unit because it is like a big Common Core review, but it’s disguised as a really fun thematic winter unit. The topics are interesting and are not specific to a particular holiday, so they can be used any time during the winter.

I really like the worksheets included. I researched and wrote original pieces that are focused on key Common Core concepts but have kid friendly topics like penguins, bears, snowmen and more! I think your kids will really like them!

The writing prompts page has ideas for narrative as well as paragraph writing. There are several different writing papers for you to use. I love to incorporate poetry throughout the year and winter provides some beautiful ideas for haiku poetry.

I hope you enjoy this unit and find it to be useful in your classroom.

Looking for some great winter themed task cards for language? This three set bundle includes idioms, multiple meaning words, and frequently confused words.
