Inside: Learn About Winter with Great Books + FREE Snow Unit Download
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. Books About Winter
Here’s the simplest way.
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.
2. A Winter Snow Mini-Unit Learning Guide
Now, take that learning just a little further with our FREE PDF Guide (see link above!) to using those winter books for simple, intentional learning. It’s still all about relaxed reading time but with a little more direction.
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
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.)
Snowflake Bentley Video
Also, Amazon offers a short film featuring the book Snowflake Bentley, which is highlighted in our free learning guide. We recommend watching it with Section One of the guide.
With the Winter Snow Learning Guide, you’ll get in some sneaky, relaxed learning over the holiday break and some cozy family connection time.
