Although I always find I am complaining about the snow and cold weather every winter, I try to cheer myself up using winter themed materials with my students.
One way I use winter is by using winter themed pictures to teach main idea. Students are given choices and have to choose the best sentence to describe the picture. grab it here
I use winter clothing to teach categories, adjectives, or following directions.
Am I the only one that enjoys using winter themed materials?!!?
