PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This 35 page versatile packet includes both color and black and white ink-saving outlined image pages so you can pick which you want to use. It includes snowball templates and directions for creating a craft for displaying the student writing. It also includes clip art to accent your anchor charts when teaching or to display on a bulletin board with the final writing pieces. You can use it to teach writing with any winter-themed topic/assignment. I've aligned it with the K-4 Common Core Standards for you. It could also be used to meet 5th and 6th grade standards as well.

Please visit my blog www.CFClassroom.com for daily pictures, tips and ideas to help organize and manage your classroom.

I use this activity as a writing sample to show progress throughout the year. The students write about each of the seasons as they begin. I save each piece of work and then put them together sequentially in a portfolio. It is great for conferences and makes a wonderful keepsake for the student.

Please also see my FALL/AUTUMN WRITING PACKET and SPRING WRITING PACKET which I use to show growth and progress over the course of the school year.

All of my packets include: brainstorming webs, top down graphic organizers, draft pages and editing pages and often much more! I have found that using the same consistent format really helps the students grow as writers.

This packet aligns with the Common Core:
KINDERGARTEN
K.W.1 Use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to compose an opinion piece about the winter season
K.W.2 Use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to compose an explanatory piece about an event related to the winter season.
K.W.3 Use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to compose a narrative about a winter event.
K.W.4 With guidance add details to strengthen writing.
