Can you feel the joy of Christmas in the air? You can bet your students will be in the holiday spirit. This book was inspired by the wonderful and festive elements of Christmas. Spread the holiday joy by using this informative and fun resource to build up your students' descriptive vocabulary and make real life connections to the season, then extend their learning into engaging writing experiences. Writing templates with prompts and rubrics are matched to each designer Thinking Map activity and the learning process it focuses on.
Think--Talk--Draw--Write about Christmas in a learning unit that's FUN for kids to use and teacher to teach with! The results will be AWESOME featured work for the classroom, then their home walls! All the finished pages will make COOL family keepsakes ...my kids love to give them away as presents!
This Think--Talk--Draw--Write Unit on Christmas was created to enhance each student's learning experience with engaging and interactive lesson tools. The unit was designed to be a constructive and collaborative student tool, which displays authentic work. Included are brainstorming tools, games, social studieslinks, art links, writing tools, and work sample pages. I stacked the preview pages with 4 pages on 1 picture, so that you could have a larger sampling of what's included.
This book was so much fun to write! I can just imagine my students' faces lighting up as they think--read--draw--write in their ideas. It great for students learning the English language, especially applicable to their working knowledge of the holiday symbols & traditions. Hope you love it too! :)
