This is an activity for our teacher friends! *Please excuse the paint-stained hands!* Materials Printout “Over the winter holiday I…”winter_holiday_writing2 Pencil/eraser Pencil crayons, felt markers etc. Directions Print out the provided sheet and photocopy enough for your class (I always did approximately 5 extra). Have the children write out what they did over the winter holiday (you might want to brainstorm with some guiding questions- Where did you go? Did you eat anything special? What traditions does your family do? Were there any special events that you attended? Did you try something new? Did anyone come to visit you? Etc.) Have the children record their experiences. There is a spot for a illustration and lines for a written response. Following this, depending on your group, you may want to get them to share with each other in partners, small groupings or as a whole group. Purpose Re-telling events and experiences Developing confidence in sharing with others (oral language skills) Learning about one’s classmates Please like & share: Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
