Categories: , Tag:


This 5 Day Countdown to Winter break is full of winter-themed reading, writing, math, crafts and other fun activities.

  • Gingerbread Day
  • Kindness Day
  • Penguin Day
  • Reindeer Day
  • Snow Day



All teachers know the last week before Winter Break is difficult. Students are distracted with their anticipation for the break, so teachers want activities to be engaging yet educational. This year, you can have a balance of both fun and learning! With these non-holiday, Classroom Countdown to Winter Break Lesson Plans, students will be racing to school, excited for what each new day has to offer

Each day’s lesson plan includes:

a reading and writing activity with differentiated pages
math activities with differentiated pages
a variety of other fun and educational suggestions to match the daily theme
To prepare for the each of the 5 Day Countdown lessons, you will need some type of container to store each day’s materials. We purchased nesting boxes, then taped the daily labels onto the side.

We've included a suggested list of read-aloud books for each day, however- the books are not included. Check your local or school library, or most books can be purchased online or in Scholastic’s book club orders. Of course, you can always choose your own book titles that go along with the daily theme.
