Snow never gets old for kids- to them it’s magical. Tie in your students’ interest in snow with a interdisciplinary study. This snowflake craft is filled with writing, science, drawing, art, rhyming, and language arts. It’s the perfect addition to your snow literacy units for first grade, second grade, and third grade! We’ve differentiated the activity so it can adjust to your grade level and students’ needs- and best of all- it’s also editable so you can customize it to fit specific students or your class in general. Just add a few snowflake picture books with this activity, and you will be set with NO PREP fun for many days!
Add hands-on fun to your winter activities with our interactive snowflake life cycle. We know that students’ abilities vary in every classroom, so we offer these activities differentiated through out the pack. Some of the pages have just a cut and paste for children who have special needs with writing and tracing. For students who can copy text, we offer a word bank.
We offer several ELA activities that include rhyming, process writing and a group activity to list verbs or adjectives about snow.
Cut, glue, arrange, and stack all these adorable activities to make you snowflake! Plus the writing section is offered in an editable format (in addition to our own prompts) so you can cover prompts specific to your units and students’ needs.
I’ve incorporated drawing into the activity, because the art teacher in me knows all kids love to draw! Plus, drawing is one of the highest forms of creation, which is a nod to Bloom’s Taxonomy.
We have a writing prompt that connects to literature. Students can either choose to draw or write about their favorite part of a snowflake picture book, which offers differentiation for all levels of writers.
Once the kids are finished with the snowflake craft hang them all over your classroom! They make incredible bulletin board displays!
