My goal for this resource was to have a fun writing activity each month that I could compile together at the end of the year to make a writing portfolio. This is completely separate from the writing pieces we do in Writers' Workshop. These writing activities are seasonal pieces that go along with popular children's books.
This is a great way to expose children to a variety of writing genres and great literature. Here is a peek at what is included:
There are 15 different activities included that encompass 11 different genres.
I can't wait to get started with my students! I'm going to start this week with the 2 August activities. It's still early in the year, and they are still getting to know each other better, so it's perfect timing.
These are the books I will be using for this resource, but there are so many other great books that can be used in addition or in lieu of the ones I listed. Mine are merely suggestions.
If you are interested, you can check it out in my TPT store by clicking here, and I would love to give it for free to the first 2 people that leave a comment.
