PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Here are 117 holiday and seasonal journal prompts arranged in 13 grids of nine prompts each to make a Tic-Tac-Toe format. These are meant to be used at specific times of the year. Students choose three of the nine prompts to write about at the start of the week. If your students journal five days each week, you could use the Tic-Tac-Toe prompts for Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and have them write about whatever they choose on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Because they choose three prompts in a row, students must make choices, weighing one prompt against another. A student may very well find that in order to choose the prompt he most wants, he must also complete an prompt that he will find more challenging. However, that more challenging prompt is likely to be met with less resistance than if there was no choice and no more motivating prompt to go with it.

This download includes the following Tic-Tac-Toe grids.

1. First Week
2. Halloween
3. Thanksgiving
4. Hanukkah
5. Christmas
6. New Year
7. Valentine's Day
8. St. Patrick's Day
9. Easter
10. End of School Year
11. Autumn
12. Winter
13. Spring

This file contains both PDF and Word versions for easy editing. Zip files should open automatically when you download them.

You can get enough Tic-Tac-Toe Journal Prompts for the whole year here:

Love this! I also have the regular (not holiday) journal prompts. I use this for part of my kids writing homework every week. It helped me cut down on copies, and my kiddos love the choice of what to write about, so they are more engaged. Thanks!

Journaling is something I haven't done too much of this year. My topics seemed bland, so we didn't stick with it. I love the tic-tac-toe format where they can choose. These seasonal ones will go nicely with the other tic-tac-toe prompts of yours I've already picked up!
