This is a fun way to engage students in daily writing or free writing activities in your class! For each of the 12 days leading up to Winter Break, share a Christmas quote with your students. On special stationary included in this activity, students write about what the quote means or reminds them of.
You can use this to assess any skill, or simply for a discussion tool. Special attention in the instructions is paid to elaboration techniques; you can use this writing activity to help students expand on ideas in order to "show" rather than "tell."
Thank you for checking out my activity! At my store, The Literacy Lounge, there is a Christmas writing project called "Christmastime Narratives" that incorporates Christmas carols into fictional and expressive writing. Please check it out!
