Skill: Persuasive writing for grades 2-3. This file is a 20 page download that will walk your students through setting up a thesis, supporting details, and convincing their readers to buy a gingerbread house.
This year at school, I am planning to create a bulletin board filled with a very sweet house for my students to observe. They will then create their own Gingerbread house using a gingerbread house type activity. I then will have then recreate the house using construction paper before filling out this packet.
I can't wait to see what they come up with:)
This file includes a sequence map, vocabulary, a group work brainstorming activity, a writing map, sales flyer, pie graph, list of candy experts sheet, a blank house template and candy pieces to design with, 5 writing prompt sheets and a 2nd page for completing the writing assignment.
Included you will also find a mapping activity with a neighborhood map for your student to fill out and then give directions to.
This is going to make a fantastic hallway display! I can't wait to use it in my classroom.
