This product contains Common Core aligned writing activities for first through third grade. I teach second grade and use the first and third grade standards to differentiate learning. In this activity, students label how to decorate a tree using sequence words. Students then write about how to decorate a Christmas tree. Students also create a story inwhich characters decorate a Christmas tree. There is a craftivity for decorating a tree as well as a coloring sheet for those with less time to complete the activities.
