Winter Animals Worksheets

This set of winter animals worksheets includes thirteen color and trace printables.

Each worksheet is formatted the same. There is a large image of each animal for preschoolers to color. They can look at real images of the animals and mimic the colors, or they can use their imaginations and color how they’d like.

After coloring the image, preschoolers will trace a sentence stating the name of each animal and its starting letter. For example, one page features a large polar bear to color along with the sentence “P is for polar bear.”

Both of these activities will help preschoolers learn more about these fascinating creatures, and have a great time doing it!

Using These Worksheets with Multiple Skill Levels

Preschoolers can benefit from different instruction methods, according to their individual needs.

Some preschoolers may need more time to complete the worksheets, so you may want to provide them with more time to finish.

Others may need more help with tracing and spelling, so you can offer assistance as needed.

Encouraging preschoolers to use their imaginations while coloring can also be a great way to differentiate instruction.

Some kids will want to stay within the lines and color exactly what’s shown in the picture. Others will want to create their own unique version of each animal.

As long as they’re learning and having fun, let preschoolers choose their own method of coloring!
