Winter Preschool Centers | Morning Tubs/Bins

Hello! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! I enjoyed some much needed time away from the computer screen to be with my family these past couple of weeks!

Anyway, I popped in today to give you guys a sneak peak at what’s included in my Winter Preschool Centers. This is a resource I made earlier this¬†year, but never got a change to blog about it, so here I am ūüôā

PLEASE NOTE: This blog post contains sample pages from my Winter Preschool Centers packet. You can download the free sample pages by click on the photos in the post. To purchase the complete W inter Preschool Centers packet, click here or on the image below.

Winter Write and Wipe Alphabet Tracing Cards. The first activity¬†is an upper and lower case letter tracing activity. I laminated the cards, cut them apart and then made a hole in the top corner of each card. I secured them together with a key ring. Provide kiddos with an¬†erasable marker or crayon and they’re ready to go! (Click the photo to get letters A-F.)

Hat and Mittens Letter and Beginning Sounds Match. As with all my preschool packets, I included an alphabet matching activity. You could use just the mittens for upper and lower case matching or, if your kiddos are ready for the challenge, add in the the beginning sound hat. (Click the photo to get letters A-F.)

Missing Snowman Letters. If your kiddos have already mastered matching upper and lower case letters and are working on letter sequence, this next missing letter activity is just the thing for them! The aim of this activity is for children to identify the missing letter and to clip the correct letter in the missing spot to complete the alphabet sequence. (Click the photo to get 3 cards.)

Snowflake Syllables. Next up, are some syllable cards. Children can either clap their hands as they say each word or tap each snowflake, and then clip on the appropriate clothes peg to show their answer.

Snow Globe CVC Words. I have also included a very basic CVC word reading activity for your kiddos who are ready to begin blending sounds to read words. Kiddos read the two words on each snow globe and clip a peg on the word that matches the picture. (Click the photo to get the pictured snow globes.)

Snowflake Rhyming. The aim of this activity is for children to match the two pictures that rhyme.

Pre-Primer Snowball Sight Words Pocket Chart Center Activity. To finish the literacy section of this packet, I have included a pre-primer sight words activity intended for use in a pocket chart center. Children simply build the sight words on each card using the snowball letters. (Click the photo to get the sight words pictured and 4 extra ones.)

Snowman Color Matching. I LOVE color matching activities because, well, they are so colorful! Of course, I had to include such an activity in this packet! While you could use beads, gems, buttons, sequins or any other small colorful objects, I decided to glue some pom-poms onto the ends of clothes pegs, thus incorporating a fine motor aspect. Children are simply required to¬†match the pom-poms to the correct snowman. (Click the photo to get red, orange, yellow.)

Which Picture is Different cards.

What Doesn’t Belong cards. Also included are “What doesn’t belong” activity cards, that require children to think what each item represents and which one is different.

Building a Snowman Sequencing Cards. The aim of this activity is for children to order the cards to show the sequence for building a snowman.

Size Order: snowmen, snowflakes, mittens. The aim of this activity is for children to order the cards by size. (Click the photo to get the snowmen sizing cards.)

Snowman Shapes. To help kiddos work on identifying shapes, I have included a snowman shape sorting activity. Children are required to to match the snowman shapes together to build a complete snowman, including head, middle section, bottom section and hat. (Click the photo to get the pictured shapes.)

Winter Roll and Cover (1-5 and 6-10). To help with number sense, I have included a “Roll and Cover” activity that requires children to roll the die and cover the corresponding amount of dots on the picture.

Winter Write and Wipe Number Tracing cards (1-10). I have also included a number tracing activity. The cards can be kept together in a book-like format by making a hole in the top of each card with a hole punch and securing together with a key ring. (Click the photo to get numbers 1-6.)

Counting Marshmallows. For this next activity, you could glue some cotton balls on to the end of a clothes peg, use cotton balls without the pegs or real marshmallows. I decided to use these small number erasers. The aim of this activity is for children to count out the number of marshmallows indicated on each hot chocolate cup or mug. (Click the photo to get cups and mugs numbered 1-4.)

Ten Frame Snowflake Puzzle Matching. The aim of this activity is for children to match the numerals to the correct then frame. (Click the photo to get the pictured cards.)

Missing Winter Snowball Numbers. The aim of this activity is for children to identify the missing number and to clip the correct number in the missing spot to complete the number sequence. (Click the photo to get the pictured cards.)

Snowman Color Patterns (AB/ABB/ABC). The aim of this activity is for children to identify the pattern on the cards and to clip the correct picture in the empty box to complete the pattern.

I hope this post has been helpful in helping you determine whether my Winter Preschool Centers packet is something you would like to purchase for your children!

    I love these and so do my kiddos! I was wondering if it would be possible to get the rest of the letter for the beginning sounds with the hats and mittens? That seems to be a favorite!

    Thank you!
