Looking for winter preschool activities for speech therapy? Look no further! There are so many hands on activities that you can use that are so easy and motivating for your preschool and early elementary students.
Winter is a fun and versatile to use in November, December, and January with your preschool and kindergarten students. Snowmen, Sledding, Skating, and Snow - what's not to love? Books and songs are perfect winter activities for preschool!
Keep reading for a MASSIVE list of Winter books and Winter songs that your preschool and early intervention students are going to love!
Using songs is an easy and fun way to get kids engaged. Most kids love dancing and singing along! For more information on how to use songs in Speech Therapy, check out this blog.
Winter Songs for Preschool Speech Therapy: You can find all of these songs for Winter Speech Therapy Sessions on Youtube. There are a variety of general winter themed songs, but you could even subdivide them into smaller winter preschool themes (e.g. penguins, snowmen, snow, etc.).
10) Move and Freeze Arctic Animals - great for verbs!
14) The Seasons Song
15) Let it Go
16) The Snow Song
Winter Books for Preschool Speech Therapy:
These are my TOP books for a Winter Themed Speech Therapy session! They are engaging and playful - a must for books for preschoolers.

6) Deep Snow
8) The Mitten
9) Snow Happy

If you need an easy preschool craft to pair with some of these top books (and wayyyy more), make sure to check out these No Prep Book Craft Sheets!
Each of the listed stories has a one page craft sheet that can be used for story retell, to answer questions about the story, to act out the story while you are reading it aloud. The top part of the sheet is the setting of the story and the bottom half has the characters/items in the story. Your students will love this fine motor activity and it can be used all year round (not just for an ocean theme!). You can check them out here!
I hope this list helps you plan some fun and easy speech therapy sessions this winter!
