Today, we are sharing about the fun seasonal writing ideas we are using in our Writer's Workshop!
Yesterday, I shared about how I got my kids started with writing sentences using wintry figurative language. Well, I found this adorable figurative language snow globe craftivity from Runde's Room during the last big TPT sale, and thought it would be PERFECT to go with our snow globe writing piece we do! I tweaked her directions a bit and had my students write a sentence with each type of figurative language next to where it said the name (her directions say to define those and write the sentence on the snow inside the snow globe) and then draw the picture literally instead of figuratively. They turned out SUPER cute! Here are just a few examples:

Here were last year's:
She was banging on the glass trying to get out. :o)
To get my kids ready, I not only played the Pixar short (see the post from last year in the link above), but we also read the book, The Snow Globe Family.
Here is a fun freebie from my BBB Diane to help you with these crafts, too!
