Winter Break Writing Activities

I have some kiddos that STRUGGLE with writing. I have the big letter writers, the obsessive tracers and tracers, the write so light I can’t see it guys, and I even have a write all my letters on top of each other writer. So yes. We work on writing with these kids ALOT. I know my kids are older but I still think being able to legibly write your name is a very functionally important goal. Since we know how helpful visual cues are – I like using visual structure to help with writing for these students.

I shared this activity (fine motor skills post) a few weeks ago:


… giving the small box helps show my students how big their letters should be. I use these reusable laminated activities in work station for independent work as well:


I love these tasks! Quick to make, easy to teach, and just wipe with a baby wipe to clean up! I decided to make some winter themed Copy and Write activities! Some times I forget to update some these oldie but goodie work tasks and I thought my guys might appreciate some new work tasks.

I am sending these home with some kiddos from some much needed Winter Break Skill Maintenance Homework! The parents love having some extra practice resources on hand.

You can use these as worksheets but I love to laminate these and write on them with a dry erase marker. I make small packets (5-8) and attach them with a binder clip in the corner! Download today on TpT! There are 12 different work cards. I am putting them into 2 packets! If you download this freebie – please leave me some feedback love 🙂


  1. I got the freebie. I’m planning a unit on snow when we come back in January and this is going to fit right in! Thanks so much for all the work you do and share. It helps me out greatly.

    I love the writing activities. I started years ago with my special-ed students
    (autistic, DS, etc..) writing in boxes. It really worked.
    I love all your ideas. It helps me out to the fulliest I also work with autistic students on the island of Saba in the Dutch Caribbean.
    Thanks so much!
