Talking about the weather is a great theme for your kindergarten classroom as it doesn’t rely on any outside knowledge and is something that all students have direct knowledge of. In terms of academics, you can use this bumper weather math worksheets pack to get frequent math practice alongside your meteorology report.
Ideally, you should be incorporating a weather report into your daily calendar routine, and you can then build out weather related activities depending on the typical season weather that your region experiences. For example, you could prep these Snowball Sorting Mats in Winter or add this Rainy Day Alphabet literacy center in Spring.

What Is In The Weather Math Worksheets Pack?
This weather math worksheets pack is a 9-page bumper set of weather theme math worksheets that you can use at any time of year since it covers various types of weather. The sheer range of weather math activities for kindergarten allows you to hit multiple standards with just one download, and you’ll get activities to meet all of these objectives in this one packet:
Number order – ordering numbers is a key kindergarten skill, and this activity is perfect for those students who are able to do this with just the digits in front of them. They have to complete these cut and paste math worksheets by looking at the different weather symbols holding numbers in the correct order.
Graphing – these cute spy and graph worksheet ask students to count the number of each weather symbol and turn it into a bar chart. This teaches logical processing (i.e. how to make sure you only count each one symbol once) and data representation (i.e. which symbol is most or least common)
Ten frame counting – ten frames are the current best way of thinking about how to teach counting to young children. As long as you start in the top left and work along each row, they will begin to see patterns about how each number is represented.
Shape formation – these tracing shapes worksheets are a nice break from all the number work that makes up the majority of the kindergarten math curriculum. Using tracing worksheets is a great way to show students how to correctly form each shape, and you can get multiple uses by laminating these sheets.
Pattern recognition – pattern recognition (being able to say what comes next in a series) is an essential skill for both math and science thinking moving forward. This weather themed pattern worksheet gives your students repeating examples of weather symbols and offers students a pair of possible answers to choose from as they complete the pattern.
Number recognition – the final worksheet has students counting lightning bolts and matching them to the correct number. Not only do they need to practice their number recognition skills, but they also develop their 1 to 1 correspondence, which is the ability to accurately count a set of objects.
