The Snowy Days of January



Do you hear it? 

The sound of breaking glass resulting from me singing the "Hallelujah Chorus" (I can't carry a tune in a bucket).  I'm FINALLY finished with my "The Snowy Days of January Math and Language Arts Station Activities" pack on TPT!!  My poor fingers can barely type anymore!

January can be such a LONNGG month, what with snow days, that I decided to create a packet to go along with this time of the year.

Here is a glimpse of what you will find.

There are five math station activities including:
     -Measure the Room.  Non-standard measurement practice.
     -Money Snowball Fight.  Counting money.
     -Snowman Subtraction.  Differences less than twenty.
     -Shape Shifters.  Shape riddles and sorting.
     -Snowy Story Problems.  Solving story problems with addition and subtraction.

There are five language arts station activities:
     -Read the Snow Room.  Words with /sn/, /ow/, and /an/.
     -Snowy Words.  Creating words using a phrase.
     -Sledding Synonyms.  Matching words that are synonyms.
     -Cocoa Compound Words.  Creating Compound Words.
     -Fact or Opinion?  Sorting sentences as Fact or Opinion.

Snowy Extras:
     -Snowy Adjectives.  Coloring a boy or girl in winter clothing based on descriptions on cards.
     -Snow Day Short Story.  Reading an original short story and then answering questions about the setting, characters, and decorating a snowman based on the story.
     -The Snow Game.  One game board, two fun games!  A math game where the children roll two dice and move the number of spaces as the sum.  A language arts game where the children determine the number of syllables in a word to know how many spaces to move.
