Ahh, winter vacation. Something that teachers and students often look forward to in order to enjoy a well deserved break! However, sometimes this means our students are getting perhaps a larger break from learning than we want them to! I love to incorporate all kinds of winter themed activities this time of year to keep the kids engaged! This fun, free, and editable winter break homework provides a great way for students to keep up some skills and good habits over break, all while still enjoying their time off!

Winter Break Homework
When my students are away from school for a holiday or extended break, I want them and their families to enjoy the break and not worry about “homework.”
However, I also know that several of them may not do any reading at all over the break (and we know how important reading is!) Unfortunately, this sometimes happens to the ones who need it most.
So I send home this fun little sheet to motivate families to work on some skill building over the two week break. It is simple and kids love to complete it for a little prize (eraser, candy cane, bookmark).
If you love this winter break homework challenge then be sure to grab the Spring Break version too!
The directions couldn’t be any more simple! The students complete the various tasks on the mugs, and color them in as they do! Easy! Yet still educational and important!
Maybe you don’t teach Kindergarten, or maybe you prefer to have different directions at the top. Good news is that this document is now completely editable!
That’s right, you can type in your own directions as well as your own tasks on the mugs!
Note: I also allow all students the chance to complete the sheet with me for a prize, especially if I know of any situation where they maybe didn’t have parent support to complete it. I will count with them, help them with sight words, etc. and count it as extra practice when they return so that they can feel proud of accomplishing it too!
