Why we like it: This cute poem highlights many of the small, enjoyable things about winter. It doesn’t have a definite storyline, although the poem feels like it could be the story of one child’s Christmas day. We enjoyed the varying moods through the poem, such as happiness, excitement, and embarrassment.
Winter means mittens, coats and hats
Heading out to make some tracks.
Here and there in the snow we go
Watching imagination grow.
Winter means a thrilling ride
Down a pure white snowy slide.
We get a cold face wash and then
Laughing we climb to the top again.
Winter means rolling a ball
To make a snowman standing tall.
Finished with a carrot nose
The snowman stands in perfect pose.
Winter is the time of year
You might slip and fall on your rear.
Its enough to make your cheeks turn pink
When lying flat-out on the rink.
Winter means we get to skate
We have a hockey game- that’s great.
HE SHOOTS HE SCORES IT’S IN THE NET
We are behind, we’ll win it yet!
Winter means reading a book
Being with friends and playing rook.
Cuddling up by the blazing fire
Watching flames rise higher and higher!
Winter means falling snow
And the snowplows have to go.
Pushing snow for many miles
Then the ditches get big piles.
Winter means cars stuck in the snow
Needing a Chevy truck to tow.
With a length of hook and chain
We get the car back in the lane.
Winter means it’s Christmas time
Everyone feeling jolly and fine.
With friends and family, spirits lift
But Jesus is the greatest gift.
Winter means snowy fun
Playing outside under the winter sun.
Winter is a wonderful time of year
For then we know Spring is drawing near.
