Now that many of us have wrapped up our Thanksgiving activities, we are looking forward to the winter holidays and searching for new, creative ideas and activities to use in our classrooms. But, while trying to fit in holiday fun, we also have to continue to meet the standards and teach essential skills. With that idea in mind, I've created my latest FREEBIE- A pair of Common Core aligned Winter Holidays writing activities. These activities are specifically aligned to 4th grade CCSS and marked with the standard they satisfy, but are also excellent activities for grades 3-6. Even better, these activities do not focus solely on Christmas, so they are great for a diverse classroom! Students will practice opinion writing and descriptive writing.
