This File Contains Two Packs: December Spelling Choice Activities and December Writing Organizers and Prompt Pages. Please make sure you haven't previously purchased either before you purchase this bundle!
December Spelling Choice Activities
When I was a child, I remember my favorite teacher giving us a themed spelling choice sheet to use with our weekly spelling words each week. I always looked forward to practicing my spelling words because I would get to use them in fun and creative ways that I got to choose. I wanted to create something similar for my students, so I started making these sheets for each month. I use these pages during my literacy rotation block, but they would be perfect to send home for homework as well.
You can print the pages you want each week, and provide your own spelling list and paper for your students to complete each activity. I like to change the pages weekly, so my students have a variety of choices to complete. Included are eight pages, and each page has at least 6 activities for students to complete.

December Writing Organizers and Prompt Pages
Since my students have struggled so much with writing this year, I decided to create this pack of engaging and meaningful monthly writing organizers and prompts. The students work on these prompts during writing time, rotation time, or free choice time. I provide a variety of organizers and prompt pages in my writing stations, and the students look choose what they would like to work on. Students never get bored with the same writing topics since these are set out for the month of December only. Each prompt has an organizer, a page with a space for a picture and a half page to write on, and a second full page to continue their writing on. All of the pages that go together coordinate with the same clipart in the bottom corner, which makes it easier for you to print and organize. The writing pages come in intermediate and primary lines for your students' needs.
After students complete their organizers, I have them use lined writing paper to write their rough drafts. After they complete their rough drafts, they use the editing checklists (included) to make corrections to their writing, then they have a classmate edit their drafts. Last, they use the coordinating lined pages to write their final drafts.
