December Writing Center Packet -
This writing packet is perfect for a writing center or literacy center. This 13 page packet includes:
5 pages – There is a black and white picture prompt at the top of each page and lines on the lower half of paper for writing about the picture. Pictures included are Santa with boy and girl, elves decorating Christmas tree, elves making toys, Santa peeking from behind Christmas tree, and children pulling tree on sled. All pictures are black and white to allow students to color after writing about the picture.
3 pages – Three black and white pictures with words are included on each page. After each picture, there are two blank lines for students to write a sentence for each picture. Page 1 has candy cane, gift, and bell; page 2 has light, tree, and stocking; page 3 has gingerbread man, reindeer, and Santa.
1 page – This December words chart has nine color pictures with matching words under each picture. The nine pictures/words are gift, Santa, stocking, candy cane, hat (Santa), tree, reindeer, sleigh, and elf. Laminate and put in writing center.
3 pages – 1) How to Decorate a Christmas tree 2) How to Make a Gingerbread House, and 3) How to Decorate a Gingerbread Man – The words first, next, and last are included at the beginning of each sentence step. There is a box for students to draw a picture for each step of the process, 3 boxes and 3 sentence starters for each “how-to.”
Writing pages can also be sent home for homework allowing parents to see their child’s stage of writing. I hope your students enjoy writing about each picture included and develop a love for writing.
