Holiday Writing and a Freebie!

I was really in the holiday spirit yesterday. I had a huge list of holiday lessons that I wanted to make for my class and I made a dent in the list! Still more in the works. Make sure you follow my TpT store so you get notifications when I add them. They just MIGHT be on sale during the first couple of days. HINT HINT

I love using holidays to get kids more excited about writing! The Common Core writing standards focus on three types of writing for the third grade: narrative, informational and persuasive. I made THIS cute gingerbread writing unit with a prompt, graphic organizer and writing paper for each type of writing! SWEET!

If you are planning to build gingerbread houses in class, then the persuasive writing prompt is a MUST for you! Students will have to convince you to let them build the houses! Make them work for it!

I also put together THIS holiday writing menu. And it's FREE! Please leave some feedback if you download.
