This collection of 15 writing prompts covers holidays and other special days in December. Students will write in a variety of genres, including lists, poetry, narrative writing, letter writing, persuasive writing, fictional writing and descriptive writing. There are a variety of ways to use the prompts. You may print the pdf file on regular paper or cardstock, laminate and place in a writing center. You may choose to display the writing prompt on your interactive whiteboard and conduct a whole-class or small group mini lesson before having students write. The labels file can be printed on labels (Avery Product #5164) and placed in students’ journals (or print on regular paper, cut out and glue in journals). The zip file contains PDF files, SMART Notebook files (for SMART Board users), ActivInspire files (for Promethean Board users) and Word files.
