After I read the book we brainstormed what Christmas makes us think about. We revised our lists and wrote a complete sentence that started with Christmas makes me think of..., they filled in the blank.I printed off a simple thought bubble for them to write their final thoughts in.
I used Krista's Character Doodle-A-Face Clipart and printed off a head for each student. I let them chose which one they thought looked most like them. Some of them weren't close, but I just went with it. They loved picking out the perfect match for themselves!
They colored the heads to look like them and cut them out.
I love that Christmas makes her think of Me!
I will be blogging about all the other great things going on in our writing center soon! Come back and see all the Christmas fun we are having working on writing this month and grab some freebies! Thanks for reading.
