PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Need a new Christmas activity that is easy to differentiate and accomplishes SEVERAL genres of writing? Need something engaging to help you make it to winter break?

Very similar to my activities for Halloween and Thanksgiving, his highly flexible, choice-oriented project gives students 40 prompts across 8 high-interest topics: charity, giving, toys, traditions, music & film, controversy, Christmas Eve & Morning, and free choice.

Use the provided brainstorming page, rubric, and story starters to make this project easy to implement and assess; adjust the scope of the project to the length of time you need it to occupy. (I am suggesting up to 2 weeks, but it would be simple to lengthen or narrow the focus.)

This 5-page download includes:
Prompts: 2 pages of 40 prompts in 5 genres across 8 topics
Rubric: a Common Core-aligned rubric by genre (including grammar!)
Brainstorming: page of at-a-glance planning across genres
Story Starters: 28 story starters to help with the creative writing component (divided by topic)
