Literacy Centers for Winter is full of reading comprehension and writing ideas to get your kids writing and practicing their writing skills. Informational, procedural, journals - it's all here! This winter-themed writing pack has so many components that will keep your little readers and writers thinking!

~ prewriting planning page included

~ winter/animal story ideas already on as titles and a blank one for students' own ideas

W.2.3 Narrative writing

Winter Reading: HOW COOL!

Arctic Animal Snip-its: Where Real Meets "I wonder"

Students read a short passage of interesting information/facts about Snowy Owls, Wolves, Polar Bears, and Snowshoe Hares. They choose their own favorite 3 facts from the reading and write them on a separate printable. (It's a great way to help students start to be aware of things they find interesting in their reading.) There is also a thought-provoking critical thinking question that they also answer on the matching printable. For example, on the wolf page, the question asks students to think about the history of "The Big Bad Wolf" and whether they think that reputation is fair. :)

W 2.8 Information writing and answering a question

This set is perfect for your 2nd-grade and 3rd-grade writers.

It is also USA/CDN spelling friendly.
