Great wiring and art piece. Can be used for several cross curricular activities. Look forward to using again this Christimas. Thanks

Imagine this: You or a character of your choosing, have just been invited to attend an ugly sweater Christmas party. You will now have the opportunity to evaluate and carefully select the décor for this festive Christmas event. There are four activities included in this file. They can be used as individual Christmas writing activities or as a complete unit, as they all go hand in hand, yet offer something different in each activity.

Four Christmas writing options to choose from:
• Ugly Christmas Sweater (design and character analysis)
• Ugly Christmas Party Invitation (design and character analysis)
• Ugly Christmas Sweater Essay (detailed character analysis)
• Ugly Christmas Sweater (personal design and reflection)

With purchase of this Ugly Sweater Christmas Writing Activity, you will receive:
• Teacher instruction page
• Sweater design activity
• Invitation planning activity
• Essay analysis assignment
• Essay writing templates
• Editable rubrics

There are several activities included in this file. The first two parts of this resource require students to analyze various elements of a character (different categories are provided within the assignment). The second, more challenging, portion of this resource asks students to complete an essay about their ugly sweater. This is where the real Christmas writing portion will come into play.

While this assignment is applicable to the outlined grades, it could be used for higher or lower levels depending on the ability of your students. The design portion of the activity will be the most fun and engaging for students this Christmas season.
