PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Lighten up the winter blues with these fun creative writing activities for the winter season. Correlated to the Common Core State Standards for Writing, this 13-page document (nine student handouts and two pages for examples & teacher's guide) includes poetry prompts, short story activities & prompts, and a fun narrative prompt using Twitter for inspiration.

As always, I like to create activities that will appeal to a wide range of students. These will be appropriate for ages 10 and up, though some of the activities may need to be modified for younger students.

Tracee -
I love this! The Twitter component is especially useful! (Even teachers who don't "tweet" will understand what is going on with your teacher examples!) I could see using parts of this in any classroom 3-8 - maybe even higher. Even better that it is FREE! Keep up the great work!

~HoJo~
On  November 21, 2011Tracee Orman answered:
Thanks so much, HoJo! I know my sophomores love doing the Twitter activity. They like to see who comes up with the best #hashtag. ;) I wasn't too sure how low to go, but I know many elementary students are perfectly capable of the poetry & writing exercises, so I am glad you agree. Thanks, again, for the feedback!

Product Questions & Answers

On  December 2, 2012Mary Bush (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi Tracee,
This product is asking for a password to save to my laptop. Is there something I am doing wrong?
Thank you,
Mary
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  December 2, 2012Tracee Orman answered:
Hi Mary, Sorry you are having problems with it. You should be able to do a "Save As...". You'll need to alter the name or change the location so it is not in the same folder or place as the original. If you are still having problems you can try re-downloading in case something happened while it was downloading. Hope that helps! -Tracee
