Bring some holiday magic into your writing activities and set up a fun December writing center with this Christmas themed activity kit of printables. These prompt cards / task cards and writing pages are great for students to use during writer's workshop, literacy centers, or Daily 5. If you prefer, these can be used whole-class as an assigned journal writing prompt rather than a station.
This item includes 36 high-interest prompt cards with cute Christmas clipart for a variety of writing genre:
Creative Writing (short story)
No formal lessons on these genre are required for students to get busy writing! However, tips are included for how you may begin to introduce your students to different styles of writing.
Topics include these themes:
Santa and Mrs. Claus
Holidays Around the World
Breakfast with Santa
Light and Energy
The Polar Express
A variety of writing papers in different line styles and a poster to display at your writing center are also included! Not all pages are shown in the thumbnails.
To use, just print and laminate the card set, cut apart and set them out at your center in a cute holiday basket or Santa hat. The students reach in, pull out a card and begin the creative process!
***To get some ideas, you can read more and see how I set up my October center in my blog post at Creative Lesson Cafe by following this link:
Enough prompt cards are provided to last for the entire month, but it's fine to jump in to get set up at any time during the month too!
This item is best suited for second grade and third grade students. First grade students will be able to respond to prompts when read aloud. Primary writing lines and picture story papers are included for young ones!
Thanks for taking a look at these writing station printables! I am working on a set for each month of the school year so stay tuned and follow me for notification when they are ready if you like. October and November kits are available at my store now!
