Ugly Sweater Christmas Writing resource was created to provide students with short, engaging writing tasks before the holiday break. The tasks are interconnected and follow a similar set-up. Each day of Christmas writing includes a short prompt centered on those ugly holiday sweaters we all love to hate, a graphic organizer for collecting ideas, and space for completing their written piece. Three prompts include pages for drawing visuals to go along with students’ writing. when all of the activities have been completed, students will have practiced narrative writing, opinion writing, and an informative piece.
- WANTED: Pants
- Picking the Perfect Partner
- The Great Sweater Caper
- The Ugliest Sweater Ever
- The Ugly Sweater Award
Daily short plans are included as suggestions for using them with your whole group. The activities could easily be used with individual students, partners, or in small groups. This Christmas Sweater Mini Writing Unit also would be perfect to have on hand as an emergency sub resource this winter. Simply copy enough for your class and leave these directions for the substitute! The pages were designed with few graphics to help save ink.
