If you’re reading any wonderful winter books, grab these winter notebooking pages to capture your child’s written narrations. We have more winter printables for kids here, too.
I don’t like to complete regular book reports with fill-in-the-blank options. I do encourage written narrations to record what my child has remembered from books or stories that we’ve read.
Narrations give your child the freedom to come up with their own interpretation and they can pick out what they think is the most memorable portion of the story.
With my second grader, I will sometimes write the narration down for him. I record his words, whatever, he wants to say. Most of the time he can do this himself but some days are a struggle, so I don’t want to lose any of his thoughts.
I’ll also do copy work or dictations using notebooking pages because I like to encourage them to draw as well. Sometimes, they can’t express exactly what they want to say in words but can express it better in pictures.

Winter Notebooking Pages
If you’re new to the use of notebooking pages, I really think you’re going to like them. They’re just a super simple way to get the kids geared up to be creative and have fun writing out their thoughts, feelings, and emotions. So much so that you can easily have them write about a writing prompt or thought every single day.
We use these Winter notebooking pages to write about a lot of our winter ideas and activities because of the cute graphics on them but you can easily use them to write about anything that you want.
As long as the kids are engaged and active in the writing, that’s all that really matters!
If you need a craft to do this winter, this Popsicle Stick Snowflake Craft is perfect. You just need some popsicle sticks, paint, and some glitter to decorate your snowflakes.
Recommended Winter Books for Kids
Read a favorite winter book and have your child write a narration or summary using the notebooking pages. Have them draw a picture of their favorite scene from the book.
Using books with the winter notebooking pages are a great asset because it helps to stimulate their mind to think about things to write or draw. They’ll be able to get great new writing prompts or maybe make up their own winter story as well!

Writing is fun, and what makes it even more fun is when they can decorate their own paper. Arts and crafts come together with writing and that would be a great start for your kid to be motivated to write even more.
Your kids will definitely squeal with excitement once you bring in this big briefcase of crafts set to them. Not only could they use this to decorate their papers after writing, but they could also use this for their future arts and crafts.
Once your kids are done with writing on their papers, they can stick these cute animal stickers on their paper to personalize it. They can also use these stickers to stick their paperwork on their own walls, as long as they have your permission!
