W is for Winter {Mommy School}

The first Mommy School packet of 2012 is here!

Download is available at the end of this post.


After the holidays, I needed something to look forward to.  A new project.  And so did Little Man!  So I decided to take advantage of the frosty weather to create a winter Mommy School packet!  I was able to complete this packet thanks to my husband!  Sweet Mr. Oopsey Daisy gave me two full days (and I mean full days!) to bust this packet out.

This unit was especially fun for me to put together because I created my own "Magical Mitten Day" with my first graders each January.  I had many happy memories sorting through my teaching files and creating a packet ready for preschoolers!  If you live somewhere where there is absolutely no snow (hello, Arizona!), then no worries.  There are tons of ideas for playing with pretend snow!  This might be a great time to teach about the four seasons.

Here are some of the concepts covered:

Letter of the Week: W

Number of the Week  2

Color of the Week: White

Theme of the Week: Winter

Song of the Week:  Once There Was a Snowman

And of course there are pages and pages of ideas that I can’t wait to do with Little Man including games, literacy activities, math, science, flannel board stories, arts/crafts, and snacks/recipes!

Here are a few sneak peeks:

This snowman sequencing will be a fun way to put events in order.

Count the number of mittens in every box!

ABC Snowman chant.  This packet is bursting with poems, songs, and games!

ABC Mittens for identifying letters

Which one is different? activity.

"The Snowey Pokey" sung to the tune of "The Hokey Pokey."  Clever!

"W "writing practice and coloring pages.

Winter Snow Walk scavenger hunt.

Roll a Snowman game!

  1. Wonderful as always!! I am in upstate NY, we still do not have any snow here!!

    • We do now!!

    • I’m in upstate NY too – near Buffalo. I haven’t had to pull out my snow blower once all winter. We had a few dustings, but nothing much.

      The winter packet looks terrific – lots of fun activities, and I love the graphics.

  2. Thanks so much for this unit. My preschooler and K kids will love it. I will be sure to link back to you when I blog about it.


  3. I think I say this almost every time, but this couldn’t have come at a better time. We’re are having units on snow and mittens this month in our Mommy School, so this is perfect! Thanks so much for all your hard work!

  4. So excited for the new packet! It looks like so much fun! Reed and I just started A is for Apples last week. Can’t wait to use this one next! Thanks for all the hard work you put into this!

  5. Slam dunk as usual Alison. Your packets are simply the greatest! I can’t wait to print this one off and have some fun with my little man. Yay for the pretend snow. We still don’t have any here in Maryland. My kids are dying. They are anxious for snow days from school. Ha ha ha!

  6. Thanks for another great mommy school packet! I can’t wait to start this with my kiddos 🙂

  7. This is so so cute!! And how awesome of you to share. Love it!!

  8. You make the most amazing packets! I was looking through the packets and I noticed that several flannel board games include printing out a page, then laminating, then mounting it to flannel. What is the best way to mount a laminated piece of paper to flannel? Thanks!

  9. Wow! I have never seen your Mommy School packets before – they’re amazing! I am always looking for a variety of fun ideas for my 2 year olds (twins) – they are completely different and while one idea will be popular with my daughter, my son will hate it and want something different! The way you’ve collected all the ideas in one packet is great! 🙂

  10. Really cute packet, Alison! I love all of the mittens. If I were doing this with my boys, I think this would be my favorite to teach!!

  11. Yeah! So excited for this unit . . .I’m having trouble in 4 share getting it to download but, I’ll keep trying 🙂

  12. Too cute. I should do this stuff with my preschoolers!

  18. These are such cute and fun packets filled with great ideas! I can’t wait to use them with my little one. Thank you for sharing these!

  19. Wow! I am blown away by how many ideas there are. So, do you do this for the entire month of January? What is your schedule like? There is a lot to do so I’m wondering how to do it all. Thank you for taking the time to do these mommy packets. How fun!

  20. Great print out for teachers! I found you via Catch a Glimpse Thursday. I have a new meme called Thematic Thursday and this week’s theme is Winter/Snow. I’d love to see this post linked up. Find Thematic Thursday here.

  27. Your unit is so cute. I have been wanting to add teaching units to my blog. I teach middle school intense special needs. I would really appreciate it if you would email me and tell me how you did such a professional format and how to link it to a blog. It’s one of my 2012 goals and have had no luck doing a google search about this topic. I would love to be able to share my experience and ideas with other’s with special need’s students. Hoping to hear from you. I’ll be joining your blog, love it.

  29. Awesome! You are so kind to share these. My little girl will love them!! 🙂 Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  30. I about cried out of relief and joy when I looked through the W is for Winter packet (which is the first one I’ve seen). Thank you SOOOO much for sharing this. My daughter is almost two and I watch my friend’s daughter who is four a few times a week. I have been at a loss of what to do that both girls might enjoy, and I truly think this is going to be an answer to my prayers. I sincerely appreciate all the work you have done for us!

  31. You are wonderfully creative and generous to share. Thank you!

  32. You are so amazing. I just downloaded your W is for Winter packet and I love it. I have a 2 1/2 year old that I am always trying to find things for her to do. Now I have lots. Thank you so much for sharing your teaching talent. I so appreciate it.

  33. I hope you don’t get tired of hearing from me, but I love everything you share with me. My 3 year old son and I have so much fun using your mommyschool printables. Thank you again for sharing your time and talents!

  34. Thanks so much. As a stay at home mom I am always looking for fun “school” type activities to do with the kids. So happy I found your site.

  35. Can anyone tell me why I would need to download the 4Share(not sure as to the exact name right now) before I could download the packet? I was just wondering, I really want to be able to access this packet and wanted to say, “Thank you for sharing” with us not so creative parents/caregivers/ grandparents! Very generous of you to provide these packets for us!

  36. What an awesome site! Thank you for sharing your amazing packets! You’re so creative. I love it.

  37. You are amazing! Thank you! We love it!

  38. I just want to thank you SO very much for putting together all of these fabulous ideas! This is my first year of teaching preschool and I teach young preschoolers (mostly 3, but a couple are still 2.) Every week I search the Internet for hour to develop my plans with creative and engaging activities. Your ideas are the best I have found and are perfect for my class! Thank you again! 🙂
