So, I happen to love holiday projects of all sorts and sizes, and even though my list of writing projects is already too long, I couldn't help but create another one! I really wanted to have the kids write about a gingerbread this year, so I thought of a cute creative writing project last week. We did them yesterday and they turned out cute :)
Here is the fill in the blank story I put on the SmartBoard.
Hi! My name is ___________ the gingerbread boy/girl. I saved myself from being eaten yesterday! I jumped off of the cookie sheet and ran over the _________________, under the ________________, through the _______________, around the __________________, and hid in a ______________________! I feel so ______________ and ________________ to be alive!
I really pushed them to write descriptively by using at least ONE adjective before each noun when filling in the blank. (ex: I ran over the gooey dough, under the baker's hand, ... )
I was super impressed by their creativity and nouns they chose!
