When It Starts to Snow Kindergarten Literature Unit

When it Starts to Snow Kindergarten Literature Unit Winter

We have a another new seasonal Kindergarten Literature Unit Study Printable Pack which is expanded to include more activities than our units in the past! Welcome winter with this new set based on the book When It Starts to Snow by Phillis Gershator.

Set the stage for your unit by gathering extra books and some toys! It helps to draw your child in and get her/him excited about your learning time together.

Don’t have a lot of toys and books to go along with this book? Ask friends, go to the library, or buy some things you think might be a good long term investment for your homeschool!

Be sure to purchase the book When It Starts to Snow, or check it out from your library. In addition to the main book, I recommend adding in other fun WINTER books and books about HIBERNATION to bring the theme alive!

When It Starts to Snow features a fun book filled with animals! A peek into hibernation, adaptation, and migration which you could easily expand on during this unit!

The printables were created to go along with the story as you will see in the photos below! Connecting your activities to a book is such a great way to weave a literacy rich learning environment into your homeschool in such a natural and fun way!

You can also add in some fun elements to the activity, or simply print, cut, and play! Below I will share the free printable, ideas for different levels of play, and fun variations.

There are two main elements of the Peek & Find activity.

The “FIND” boards, available in color or BW…

Slide6  Slide7

  

The “PEEK” cards…

Slide8  Slide9

Print the board, selecting color for younger kids to make it easier and selecting BW for older kids to make it more difficult.Print the cards, on cardstock if possible and cut them out. Laminate if you plan to use these cards repeatedly.

Looking for a great color printing option? See our favorite printer and ink here!

A few options for play…

Option #1 {single player}

Print the Peek & Find board.

Print the cards and cut out.

Mix up the cards, choose one at a time and find the object on the Peek & Find board. Color, circle, or mark the object.

Option #2 {2 or more players}

Print a Peek & Find board for each player and one set of cards. Cut out the cards.

Flip over a card and race to see who finds the object first on their board. Using Dot Paint with this game is fun!

Winner keeps the card.

Person with the most cards at the end is the winner!

See a video of my daughter and I playing {we were using the SPRING theme board in this video} …

Option #3 {sensory, fine motor activity}

Create a sensory bin and bury the cards.

Use a fine motor tool {child tweezers} to dig for cards and pull them out and then find the object on the Peek & Find board and mark it.

Option #4 {gross motor activity}

Hide the cards around the room and challenge your child to find one card at a time and bring it back to the board, find it, mark it, and repeat! This is a great version for those of you with energetic younger kids!

Options for marking the board…

  • Mini Snowmen
  • Dot Paint
  • BINGO Chips
  • Bottle Tops
  • Pouch Tops
  • Mini Pom Poms
  • Markers, Crayons, Colored Pencils
  • Beads
  • Mini Erasers
  • Beans

These mini snowmen would make adorable markers for the boards!
