I am going to have each student create their own Christmas tree pictures. I found an awesome Christmas tree made out of hearts on Marcia's blog at http://learningideasgradesk-8.blogspot.com. I love how ADORABLE it is, and it could be made across multiple grade levels. Thanks for the great idea!
Then, after they have created a beautiful tree, they are going to describe it using as many SPARKLING ADJECTIVES as possible. I usually tell the kids to use Amazing Adjectives but I like Sparkly because it is more holidayish! :)
Here are some Language Arts freebies to get them started...You could post their artwork and stories in the hall or take a daily Language Arts grade. There is one assessment page too. Click on the freebies to download them from our store.

Have fun and I hope you enjoy the freebie!
