Of course, the winter season would not be complete without winter centers! Before springtime hits is the time when most teachers are brushing up on skills and concepts usually on standardized tests. Teaching those common skills doesn’t have to be boring! Having centers is a great way for kids to practice concepts such as categorizing parts of speech, or finding which sentences are complete or not.
All my winter centers are sold either individually or as a bundle.
ELA Winter Centers
Snowball Complete and Incomplete Sentences has students read each sentence and decide if it is a complete or incomplete sentence. They then place the snowballs in the correct pail then rewrite five incomplete sentences to make them complete.
With Skate Around the Contractions students match each broken ice patch to create a contraction. Then match with the ice skate with the correct contraction.
This adorable center Penguin Synonyms and Antonyms matches each penguin with the correct hat that contains the antonym and the ice patch that has the matching synonym.
Can you tell I love penguins!? Penguin Parts of Speech has 80 different penguins that match with an ice patch that is either a noun, verb, adjective or adverb.
Homonyms (or multiple-meaning words) can be tricky to teach, but don’t have to be with Multiple Meaning Mittens. Students match each mitten with a definition to the correct basket. There are directions included to make this center even MORE hands-on!
Snowman Place Value is a fun center where students build a snowman by matching the parts of a snowman that has numbers in numerical form, expanded form, and written form.
Snowball Even and Odd has students solve equations with up to three digits and place them in the correct pail based on if the answer is even or odd.
One of the best things about winter is being able to come in from the cold and get a cup of hot chocolate! Bring warmth and tastiness into the classroom, while teaching time, with Hot Chocolate Time. Each mug contains an analog clock on it and matches with up to 2 marshmallows written in digital or written time! Contains times for every five minutes!
Arctic Addends is a fun center for students to practice finding missing addends. They match each igloo containing a number with the equation on the ice patch where the number will fit.
You can get all of these centers individually or save with the bundle and have ten math and ELA centers for winter!
