Students create a listing for a gingerbread or "wintery" house of their choosing! Each child has the option to choose 1 of 3 pre-designed houses or use one of the blank templates to create one of their own! Use as a whole class or in a center!
Creative writing & drawing activities include:
*6 pages of home "listings"
*Using guiding questions, choose a room in the house and describe & draw it (one with extended writing & one shortened version)
*Persuade Me! writing - tell me why I should buy YOUR house!
*Venn Diagram for compare/contrasting - have students look at one another's houses and Persuade Me! writing - a great way to engage all students!
