We do a discriptive writing about everyones favorites winter hat. When we are done, I collect the hats and have them in the middle of the circle. The kids read the discription and the rest of the kids have to identify the hat. The kids really love this.
I also do a gingerbread writing. A narrative about where the gingerbread man ran too
And snowmen at night. Read the story then make snowmen on black paper and write about what they think snowmen do at night
