This resource includes 30 pictures with a Christmas/winter theme, 30 graphic organizers, and a rubric. Make writing fun for your students before Christmas break! :)
Tips and Tricks
1. Introducing this Activity to your Students:
Option 1- Student Choice! Show each slide containing each picture on the SmartBoard so students can start brainstorming about what they would like to write about.
Option 2- There are enough picture prompts and graphic organizers for most classroom sizes. After showing your class each picture, you may pass out a different graphic organizer to each student at random.
2. Print the activity double sided with the graphic organizer on one side and the rubric on the other. Students will know exactly what is expected of them and it will make grading easier for you. You’ll also save paper!
3. You may choose to have the students write the full story on a separate sheet of paper after you have graded the graphic organizer. Totally up to you! :)
Your feedback is very important to me! Please let me know if this was helpful to you.
