"Welcome To My House" is an interesting and fun writing prompt with two door options.
For one, students decorate their construction paper door, trim and glue the “hinge” portion to a sheet of white paper, which they also trim. The other, is a “color me” option.
Inside, students write their final draft completing the writing prompt: "Welcome to my home for Christmas..."
Encourage students to use plenty of adjectives that involve their senses, to help describe what a visitor might see, hear, and smell, as they enter their home.
I've included a completed sample to help you explain the lesson.
Students who don't celebrate Christmas, can simply write a "Welcome to my home" for another celebration or holiday that their family celebrates.
If you do a Christmas Around the World theme, students can choose a country, and welcome visitors to their home in France, Sweden, Mexico etc. as they write from that point of view.
Completed projects make a lovely bulletin board.
I’ve also included an address tag, to go along with your display.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a very Merry Christmas, from my classroom to yours.
