The holidays are an exciting time for children in the classroom and the home. The rich history and fun celebrations of holidays make students excited both for parties and learning. The Writing Prompts for Holidays series is a collection of imaginative situations and questions related to 20 major holidays, including Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, and more. Fourth Grade Writing Prompts for Holidays is a workbook that will help fourth grade students to start developing their creative writing skills. Examples from the book: In a distant possible future, all fireworks have been made into digital holograms. While the displays have become brighter, bolder and more high-definition, they are no longer real. What do you think such artificial explosions would lose by being faked? Which would you prefer, digital or real, and why? Imagine that you had to give a speech to a group of company presidents to convince them to improve their companies' environmental practices. What might you say to them, how might they react, and what would be the end result? George Washington has had a state, a capitol, and plenty of towns and people named after him. What would it be like to have your namesake all over the place? Would you be proud? Would you let it go to your head? Why would you deserve it? Table of Contents: 1. Labor Day 2. Columbus Day 3.
