Snow Day Missions

Packet Cover
I survived the first day back from Winter Break and was greeted with two new students. I'm up to 25 but I'm still doing better than the 28 students I had last year!

Anyway I'm thinking ahead to all those snow days I'm believing we will have this year and I want my students to be prepared. I know there's all kinds of websites I can assign my students but at the end of the day... I'm old school and I love good ole fashion paper and pencil and face to face instruction. So here's what I came up with...

I decided to create a menu of activities and a log for recording their learning.

Created this snowball web and coordinating stationary for them to write about their snow day.

I created some math grids, word problems and threw in a cute poster they could work on.

Here we have some language arts and science activities.

All the many papers I need to copy for these packets not to mention the Time For Kids Magazine and reproducibles I'm also going to put with it.
I pulled my resources from a variety of places. I created a lot of them on my own but here's the links to the resources I found online:

Snow Day Close Reading Passage from TpT store Common Core and So Much More. Free

December Find the Evidence from TpT store Luckeyfrog. $4


  1. This is awesome! I love your blog and your great resources. Where can I find the math worksheets that you have included as well as the other resources that are not listed here. I would really like to do this in my 3rd grade class.

  2. Hey! I love everything you make. I am a 3rd grade teacher in VA too, and I've been following you for years now. Making a snow day packet to send home just in case is a great idea. I'm already emailing my team.
