"Welcome To My House" is an interesting and fun writing prompt
with two door options
For one, students decorate their construction paper door
, trim and glue the “hinge” portion to a sheet of white paper, which they also trim. The other, is a “color me”
Inside, students write their final draft
completing the writing prompt: "Welcome to my home for Christmas..."
Encourage students to use plenty of adjectives
that involve their senses
, to help describe what a visitor might see, hear, and smell
, as they enter their home.
I've included a completed sample
to help you explain the lesson.
Students who don't celebrate Christmas
, can simply write a "Welcome to my home" for another celebration or holiday
that their family celebrates.
If you do a Christmas Around the World
theme, students can choose a country, and welcome visitors to their home in France, Sweden, Mexico etc. as they write from that point of view
Completed projects make a lovely bulletin board
I’ve also included an address tag
, to go along with your display.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a very Merry Christmas, from my classroom to yours
