Winter Writing Activities for Pre-K & Kindergarten

One of the best things about these writing centers is that once students learn the routines and directions for them, they can do them fairly independently. That means instructions can be given early in the year, and then all year long as the writing centers are changed out, there is no need to reteach routines – that’s a win!

For these winter writing centers, students will be introduced to the following vocabulary words: mittens, coat, snowman, sled, hat, hot cocoa, snow, and ice skate.

The included vocabulary cards come 4 to a page (8 words total) and are a great size to accompany all the activities. Be sure to laminate them for durability and reuse before adding them to your writing centers!

Let’s check out some of the fun activities included!

Winter Story Book

The possibilities are endless for our winter story book! You could even send it home as a fun themed writing book for kids to work on writing with their families.

Each page has a winter vocabulary word and space for the kids to use their creativity to write a sentence or story around that word. Younger students or very early writers may just write the word several times, and that is okay!

Print the pages double-sided and use the cover page to create a journal. Or you can just use single pages as writing prompts in your literacy centers.

With the story book, the goal is for kids to write a few sentences or a short story about the pictures.

Mini “Write It!” Book

I like to use this mini “Write It!” book at the beginning of the winter season. It’s a great way to introduce the new vocabulary. This way my students are prepared with prior knowledge of the terms as we work through the rest of the winter writing center activities.

Each page of our mini “Write It!” book contains a picture that matches a vocabulary card and a space for the students to write the word. Then they can color the fun pictures.

Winter “Write the Room”

This is one of our favorite activities to use with the vocabulary cards! It is like a traditional “Write the Room” but you can choose how to use it with your students because it’s so versatile.

Set out the recording sheets at a table with the vocabulary cards for students to see and simply record. Or, you can hide the cards in a sensory bin.

I like to post the cards all around the room and the kids walk around with clipboards as they label the pictures.

Write It! Strips

Dry erase markers are always a hit in Pre-K and Kindergarten so when I add these vocabulary strips to our writing centers, it’s an exciting day!

Just print the strips, laminate them, and then add them to your centers with the vocabulary cards. Your students can write, erase, and write again for tons of winter-themed writing fun!

Plus, at the end of the file, all of the color items also come in black and white for an ink-saving option!

These winter writing activities are hands-on, fun, and engaging!
