"Welcome To My Home!" is a very versatile activity, as it can be used generically for fall, as well as Thanksgiving.
Use it as a card for younger children to make, or as a writing prompt craftivity for older students.
Ive discovered that anytime I toss a bit of craftiness into a writing lesson, my students are excited to get right down to business and more happily engaged.
Completed projects make a sweet bulletin board too.
I’ve included a list of 21 writing prompt options for them to choose from.
Besides the writing prompt choices, there are also several patterns for different “keepsake” cards you can make.
Personally, I designed this activity for Thanksgiving; ( “Welcome to my home for Thanksgiving” ) however, I realize some children don’t celebrate this holiday, so I’ve also included a generic “Welcome To My Home” pattern as well.
Choose which template is appropriate for your kiddos or give them a choice.
Be sure and check the PREVIEW for my samples.
Templates come in black & white for students, as well as full color, so that you can quickly and easily make an example to share.
I purposely used the word “home” rather than “house” because home has a connotation of a place where you live, which could be an apartment or igloo, while a house is specific.
I’ve also included extra patterns with a bit of blank space on the door and doorstep, so that children can practice writing their address.
This activity is an educational and quick,” little something”, you can plug into that often hectic last day before Thanksgiving break.
Easy-peasy for you; super-fun for your students.
