Free Printable Winter Worksheets

You can color, cut and fold this pre-printed booklet for display at home or school. An idea might be to also add your own pages as a journal. Kids can keep a journal of the weather for several days and draw a picture of the daily sky conditions.

Help very young students to learn how to stay in the lines when they color. I suggest making a larger version of this worksheet. You could also go outside and attach the paper to a window. Using washable markers, students can draw on a window or patio door at home to create their own window cling.
