In New York City, one of the greatest things to see is the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree! If you are in NYC, chances are you have taken your class to visit Top of the Rock and to the see the tree.
Either for morning work or homework, I use this writing prompt with my second grade students to help them get creative and design their own tree. Before you draw... you need to write about your design. There is an option for this to be a holiday tree instead of a Christmas tree as well.
