Each prompt is related to the winter holiday season, has a corresponding editing task card and asks students to use various grammar and writing elements, including varying syntax, literary elements and points of view. See the preview for examples.
Also great for bell ringers, sub plans, editing practice, quick-writing practice, partner work and just-get-me-to-winter-break plans.
Each page contains four of the same prompts or four of the same editing checklists to cut out and distribute to students. Students can glue the prompt in their notebook, write their paragraph and then glue the editing checklist below it, allowing another student to easily assess their work.
Students should already be familiar with the following concepts before using the cards: sentence types (exclamatory, simple, complex, compound, compound-complex, interrogative, imperative), phrases (gerund, infinitive, prepositional, participial), figurative language elements (personification, simile, metaphor, allusion, analogy, hyperbole, imagery), writing elements (point of view, repetition, dialogue, facts, opinions, mood, hook, thesis, transitions), and persuasive elements (pathos, ethos, logos, counter-arguments).
A teacher instruction page is also included.
