Are you ready for some LOW PREP, Holiday Themed, Center Ideas? This download is full of fun activities that will get your students excited about Christmas and procedural writing!
There is a teacher book that explains how to decorate a tree, which comes in 2 versions (a full color version, and a color ink friendly version). After you read the book as a class, students can complete their own book in the writing center.
The student book has 4 different versions, all in black & white, for easy printing! One version is just like the teacher book, which has all the words and pictures. Students can read the book and color the pictures. The second version contains only the words, which allows the student to be the illustrator. In the third version, the student can write in the missing sight words and in the fourth version, the student becomes the author, and write steps to match the pictures!
Also included in the download is an illustrated word bank (also comes in 3 versions... full color, color ink friendly, and black & white/blackline), and a Christmas tree shaped book (with 3 choices for the cover)! After your student write in the shaped book, put them on your bulletin board for a cute work sample display!
With all the options in this download, you can use them for whole group instruction, small group instruction, or in your reading & writing centers!
