This is a winter writing MINI - UNIT. I created it to help my students write sentences using adjectives and positional words among other things.
FIRST, the students color the pictures.
SECOND, the students write about the pictures that they colored, so everyone's writing will be somewhat different even though they are coloring the same pictures.
THIRD, the students describe the pictures that they colored using adjectives and positional words.
LAST, the students write a story about the picture (additional lined paper for more extensive writing included).
My students really love to color and write about their pictures.
I hope you can use the idea! :)
