The holidays are an exciting time for children in the classroom and the home. The rich history and fun celebrations of holidays make students excited both for parties and learning. The Writing Prompts for Holidays series is a collection of imaginative situations and questions related to 20 major holidays, including Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, and more. First Grade Writing Prompts for Holidays is a workbook that will help first grade students to start developing their creative writing skills.
Examples from the book:
31. Imagine that you are a piece of candy on Halloween. What kind of candy are you and how would you enjoy the holiday?
75. What is the best thing that has happened to you in the past year? Why does it stick out as the top moment during an entire 365-day period? What is something that could top that moment in the coming year?
63. It's Christmas morning, and after hearing a noise, you've tiptoed downstairs to get a closer look. As you peer around the hallway, you come upon a major surprise! What is the surprise and how do you react to it?
