1-2-3 Come Do Some Creative Christmas Writing With Me
No matter what your age, pretending is so much fun, particularly with children. It's easy for them to become princesses and pirates.
With that in mind, I designed 7, creative, Christmas-themed, writing prompts.
They are easy-peasy "print & go" worksheets, that I'm sure your students will enjoy.
The more creative aspect, has students "think outside the box" and really try and become an elf, reindeer, snowman or gingerbread cookie.
What would these "characters" say, or what might they overhear in a conversation that Santa is having?
You can simply give students a choice, and only do one, or add the cute journal cover, and have students write a new one each day.
Another option, is to have students do a non-fiction prompt, using factual information that they've learned about penguins and snowflakes.
What would they say, that would tell us factual information?
When everyone is done, go around the room, and have each student share one thing.
No time to complete them all in class? They make fun "homework" that your students will enjoy doing.
To add a bit of technology to the lesson, give them the sites you want them to visit to get some facts about penguins, reindeer, or snow, that they can then include when writing their sentences.
My full-color, completed samples, will give you an example that you can share with your students, to help explain what you want them to do. They match the black & white templates for students.

Here's hoping your kiddos enjoy "pretend writing" as much as I did creating the samples.
The featured FREEBIE today, is another form of writing. Using a Venn diagram helps your students learn to compare and contrast in a fun way.
There are 7 Venn diagrams in this packet, all featuring an elf. I've included color as well as black and white templates.
Use the black and white copy for students to write their own, then call them up for a whole-group discussion and add everyone's ideas onto the colored Venn diagram.
Well that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by.
It's a chilly, but sunny morning, and I'm in the mood and energized to start decorating for Christmas! Wishing you a festive day.
