The holidays are an exciting time for children in the classroom and the home. The rich history and fun celebrations of holidays make students excited both for parties and learning. The Writing Prompts for Holidays series is a collection of imaginative situations and questions related to 20 major holidays, including Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, and more. Second Grade Writing Prompts for Holidays is a workbook that will help second grade students to start developing their creative writing skills.

Examples from the book:

36. Many soldiers are courageous in defending the nation and its people. What do you think it means to be courageous? Describe a time that you were courageous. What was it that made you display such courage?

111. There are many stories about George Washington that may or may not be true. Imagine that someone came up with a tale about you that was completely made up. What would the story be about and would people believe it? Why or why not?

142. Create a conversation between two marshmallow Peeps on Easter. Do they enjoy how popular they've become? Are they scared of being eaten? Why or why not?
