Feel free to use this freebie as part of your writing practice. It can be used as a whole group activity within your Writing Workshop as a Free Write or taken through the entire writing process. It can also be used as a fun activity for your students to complete on their own in a writing center during Reading Workshop. Provide them with a copy of the attached writing paper, and allow them to free write what it would be like to be a snowflake. I have also included a sample rubric using the scoring system I am most familiar with (4.0). The qualifications for scoring will be based on the 6 traits of writing. You can certainly use the rubric I have provided, or one of your own if you choose to score this writing. Once completed, mat their work onto colored construction paper to provide stability and a pop of color if you’d like. Any feedback you have would be more than welcome. Thank you for your download. Enjoy!
