Sometimes cabin fever can make homeschooling a struggle. But you can also use that cold weather to inspire some fun learning themes. I’ve seen some amazing resources for free winter themed printables to use in your homeschool and wanted to feature them in one place so you can beat the winter blues and keep your children on track.
These free homeschool printables look amazing with over 100+ pages of vivid pictures including wall cards, writing prompts, history, medal counting and tracking, sport descriptions, host city profile, geography, art and more! Everything you need to learn while watching the winter Olympics! This pack can be used for grades PreK – 6th. I like how all subjects are incorporated so you cover it all with just one theme. If you have a sports enthusiast in the house, this pack will be a huge hit!
Preschoolers and kindergartners will love all the activities in these printables. I can only name a few since there are so many; 10 Piece Puzzles, 10 Part Math Puzzles, Clip & Count to 20, Size Sorting, Small Book, 3 Different types of Writing Pages, Color by Size, Color by Addition, Color by Subtraction, Mixed Up Word Matching, and more! There are also links to a tot school pack and snowman themed printables!
I hated spelling growing up! I really wish someone would have printed a game like this one for me. You could make it really exciting by adding a small snack for every word spelled right. The beauty of this game is that you can use any word list and multiple word lists for different ages. So all your children can play at the same time and learning can take place without you.
Older children will enjoy researching facts about animals that live in the coldest part of our earth. Each sheet has a great picture of the animal with different facts children can easily research for in any encyclopedia or online. To get out of the house, take a trip to the library and grab some books about these animals to make it a complete unit. This pack includes 12 pages with a fact matching game at the end to review what your children learn!
You’ll love all of these printables because each one can be used in a hands-on activity. For PreK-K there is addition, subtraction, telling time, counting money, animals of Antarctica, winter weather cards, and conifer tree match up! I like how children can work on these independently and you can set them up like little stations and have them rotate through each one. Even if you don’t use these, you’ll gain creative ideas for hands-on learning activities for your little ones. So click the image to get some winter learning inspiration!
If your children can’t take being inside anymore, take the learning outside. Use the cold weather as an opportunity to do some observational science. These winter journal printables are the perfect match for your excursions. You could even incorporate some photography skills in this activity and let your children take pictures of their favorite winter finds to make their own little winter book. Just remember to bundle up!
Take a look at some of the amazing winter wonders that God has created! Explore the science of winter through writing, reading, and art. Free downloads include: 11 winter notebooking pages, life of a snow crystal, identify that tree, snow-did-you-know mini book, changing seasons, winter art and more! I love how God’s word is incorporated into some of these printables. With these free printables, your children won’t be the only ones learning!
Bring Jan Brett’s beloved book to life for your children with free Mitten Themed Printables. Take the idea even further by collecting warm clothing for people in need. Just as God provides for us throughout the seasons of our lives, we can help provide for others. It’s God’s spirit working through us!
