Science > Seasons · Winter > Weather > What is snow?

Snow is a type of precipitation (take a look at this fun presentation), such as rain, sleet, or hail that fall from the clouds. The Earth's water is always in movement and the water cycle (or hydrologic cycle) describes this movement on, above, and below the surface of the Earth. A snowflake is an aggregate of ice crystals that forms while falling in and below a cloud.


Alphabet Activities > Letter S is for Snow

Present the color poster and select the activities of your choice. Discuss the visual elements in the poster to expland on the winter theme. There are three snowflakes wearing essential winter wear: a winter hat with a pompom, mittens and scarf.

Children age 3 and under:

Print a letter S coloring page in D'Nealian or Standard Block font and a snow theme coloring page behind it or on a separate page if using paints to decorate later. Discuss other letter S words found on the activity worksheet.

Trace letter S's in upper and lower case with your finger as you also sound out the letter. Invite the children to do the same on their coloring page.

Children can trace and color the letter S's. After completing coloring the letter, encourage children to color the image. Write the word snow on the finished coloring page.

Handwriting worksheet tips:

Encourage the children to trace the dotted letter, and explain the direction of the arrows and numbers that help them trace the letter correctly.

During the demonstration, you may want to count out loud as you trace so children become aware of how the number order aids them in the writing process.

Have the children find all the letter S's in upper and lower case on the page and encourage them to circle them.

Children ages 3+:

Letter S words: Letter S Worksheet Program and Mini-Book (long a sound) can be used as part of program of activities to reinforce letter practice and to identify related words. Read suggested instructions for using the worksheet and mini-book.
