The is the perfect accompaniment to the ORIGINAL Paragraph of the Week program on TpT! Paragraph of the Week Holiday Edition is a daily, scaffolded HOLIDAY approach to paragraph writing is perfect to help get your students writing good, solid, detailed paragraphs. Students will write one holiday themed paragraph weekly, focusing on the organization and format of the paragraph itself.
This resource follows the same format at the ORIGINAL Paragraph of the Week. It also includes digital GOOGLE SLIDES links for every prompt in both level 1 and level 2. That means that there is a paper version to print out OR a digital version to assign to your students! BOTH are included in this file.
There are 29 writing prompts in this resource. Each holiday has TWO levels of those prompts. All of the prompts are student-centered so that they will not get bogged down on the topic but rather focus on writing the paragraph itself. The first level of the prompts are heavily scaffolded, resulting in a nice, solid paragraph. The second level of prompts switch focus to revising and editing, since the students are now more proficient at writing the actual paragraph. Download the preview to see which holidays have prompts in this resource.
There are samples of completed paragraphs, a rubric (in two sizes for you to choose), a revising checklist, and digital Google Slides files to be used with Google Classroom!
This is designed as homework (that is how I use it in my room) however you can also use it as classwork in a center or writing warm up.
This is for use by one teacher in one classroom. If you would like to share with your colleagues, PLEASE purchase a multiple license. This really was a lot of work for me and I would appreciate it.
