What’s Included:


  • Reindeer Rhymes: Students will read the word and write a rhyming word. (4 pages)
  • Middle Sound Mittens: Students will use the color code at the bottom of the page to color the mittens based on the picture’s medial sound. (2 pages)
  • Snowy Sounds: Students will cut and glue the pictures to sort them based on their short vowel sound.
  • Simple Sentences: Students will read the simple sentences and match them to their picture.
  • Winter Boot Blends: Each pair of boots on the page has a picture. Students will use the code to color the boots based on the picture’s end blend. (2 pages)
