Product Description
Simple and easily adaptable to several holidays!

These ready to print products are ideal for teaching descriptive and narrative writing. I have successfully taught this genre of essay writing to middle school and high school students by providing them with a prompt to which they readily respond- their personal experiences at the holidays:

• Fourth of July
• Thanksgiving
• Christmas
• Easter

Teaching this genre of writing doesn’t have to be complicated. We write best about what we know, and students instinctively know this!

I always provide the option for students to write about the holiday they wish they were having, just in case their holidays are not picture-postcard perfect. Exchange students can write about what they expected this holiday to be like and/or how the holiday in their home country is different or similar.

Each unit in this bundle contains the following:

• Introduction and prompt
• Pre-writing graphic organizers
• Sample essay introduction
• Rubric
