This writing prompt craftivity reinforces the 4 seasons and the use of adjectives to make writing more descriptive.
It's a nice alternative to the popular "I'm thankful for..." writing prompt.
My students are very motivated to get down to the business of writing, when there's a bit of craftiness involved, and completed projects make an awesome bulletin board or hallway display too.
There's a cover page, 4 seasonal tree top writing prompts: (I'm thankful for winter, spring summer, fall because...) plus an ending prompt that says: "Most of all I'm thankful for . . ."
Students work on one tree top "page" each day. When everyone is done, have students share one of their favorite pages.
I've included a blank tree top pattern for older students.
For more pizzazz, students can add small seasonal stickers or drawings to the tree tops. i.e. snowflakes for winter, blossoms for summer etc.
Adding a school photo to the "hollow" of the tree adds that finishing touch.
