Silence for Sandy Hook Elementary

Holiday Writing

Over the last couple of weeks, Miranda's class has been using our Reining in Reindeer Facts RAFT task and Mooseltoe response to literature & opinion writing. Her students used the internet and a variety of non-fiction texts from the library to gather information about reindeer. She gave her students the option to use our brochure template, create their own brochure using construction paper, or something else they think is creative. It took them about a week to complete their brochures. Here are some pics of how cute it turned out!
Miranda also read aloud the awesome holiday book Mooseltoe and had her students write a response to literature in the format of a letter. Her students had so much fun with this, we decided to turn it into a freebie to share with all of you! Here are some pics of how their moose turned out:
Both of these activities are in our 2 Brainy Apples Teachers Pay Teachers store: Reining in Reindeer Facts and Mooseltoe Response to Literature & Opinion Writing. And best of all, the Mooseltoe activity is a FREEBIE! Enjoy! :)
