Integrate Language Arts and Art!
These draw and write quick-write activities ask students to draw first before writing. This allows them to create visual details before putting their thoughts into words. Use these for literacy centers, independent work, or as prompts for whole class discussions.
Six drawing/writing prompts are included:
• what animals do in winter
• my favorite thing to do on a winter day
• things I like and dislike about winter
• a good way to stay warm
• what I see outside my window
• how winter is different from other seasons (poetry write!)
The writing prompts are open-ended enough to allow for students to be as creative as they like with their writing. Writing space is unlined to allow for all sizes of handwriting and a variety of grade levels.
For best results, have students do all drawings in color, and encourage them to use details and include as much background as possible.

lessons and resources are designed to foster student creativity, choice, and independence, and to encourage authentic art-making. Consideration is given to developmental appropriateness, differentiation possibilities, and teacher individuality. For this reason, directions are general, expectations are open-ended, and clip art on student pages is kept to a minimum.
