Teaching Preschoolers about Seasons


We do calendar time daily, but as the seasons change so infrequently it can be difficult for children to grasp the whole concept so I came up with this {FREE} Season Spin Printable.

FREE Learning about Seasons Printable

Free printable four seasons spin
There are 2 options. You can either teach them the four seasons alone or you can teach them about the 4 seasons showing the months. I feel like adding the months allows kids to better grasp when the months /seasons occur. PLUS I think it is cool for kids to see all the months in a circle that they go around and around over and over.  Each season has a section to color in representing the season. Then you stick the two sections together with a brad and you have a fun season spin. We are keeping ours with our Calendar so that as the months or seasons change they can see the change happen as part of a whole. The beautiful month clipart is used with permission form Philip Martin.

We also learned about seasons with these activities:

Season Spin Preschool Activity

I called out an activity that takes place in a particular season. The kids then turned their season spinner to the correct spinner (they got a Valentine Conversation Heart for correct answers =-) Preschool science - Learning about Seasons

What do you Wear in the _____ Activity

Dress-up FUN! I called out a season and the kids got the appropriate clothes on for the season from our dress-up clothes. This is a great way to help them understand about dressing appropriately!

    Seasonal Hand Art Craft for Kids

    We made this artwork showing the same tree in the four different seasons. We traced Minnie’s hand to make the tree trunk. Then we labeled our four season trees. As Goofy had just finished studying famous artist Seurat we decided to use his Pointillism style to make our trees.

      5. Siniti - I just tried and it worked fine. The file is in Google Docs so you will need some sort of google account to dowload it. If you continue to have problems you can email me livinglifeintentionallyblog (at) gmail.com

      10. Hello there! Thanks for the free season spinner printable. I downloaded it, copied it for my class and cut out all of the circles ready to go... then I realised that the months/seasons are American not Australian! So into my scrap paper box they went, and I'll do the set without the months. But if you'd ever consider creating a set with the Australian months and seasons I would gladly purchase a copy on TpT :)
        I'd also love to feature this resource on my blog (with your permission) as part of my summary of my weather unit.
