Inside: Learn About Winter with Great Books + FREE Snow Guide

Winter breaks provide a much-needed time to catch your breath after busy holiday months. However, sometimes it’s hard to fill all of those delightfully empty days with intentional, yet still relaxing, things to do with your family.

We have a solution to help you beat winter break boredom in your home.

How does this sound? Peaceful, relaxed learning centered around reading great books.

We’ve got you covered with two ways to do exactly that.

1. Download the FREE Winter Snow Mini-Unit Learning Guide

The Learning Guide covers:

  • Wilson “Snowflake” Bentley (the first person to photograph snowflakes)
  • Science of snow (how it is created, weather conditions, etc.)
  • Booklist for snow-themed story time
  • Animals in the winter
  • Winter learning activities
  • Simple art projects
  • Sensory project ideas

2. A Winter Snow Mini-Unit Learning Guide

Now, grab some winter books (see #3 below) and our FREE PDF Guide for some simple, intentional learning. It’s still all about relaxed reading time but with a little more direction.

Your time together will be centered around read-aloud time and nature study. (And if you don’t already know, we’re big fans of the benefits of reading aloud and the benefits of nature study with kids.)

3. Read Books About Winter

Grab a handful of these winter-themed books, curl up together on the couch, and read to your heart’s content. There’s tons of learning to uncover in the stories, and a little discussion of what is learned will help solidify some of that knowledge.
