This is often a difficult season of teaching. If you are looking for something fun and interesting to fit into this space between Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks then check out this Winter Solstice offering from Site Director Deanna Mascle: A Winter Solstice Writing Challenge.
The slide presentation includes her third advent writing challenge which offers 25 poetic writing prompts focused on themes related to the winter solstice. The slide show also includes the two previous advent writing challenges so there are a wide range of poetic writing invitations for you and your students to explore.
While simply engaging in a writing marathon is meaningful enough for any writing project teacher, the package also includes some recommended forms that you can explore for yourself or with your students.
In addition, there are links to other lessons and activities. If you have a winter solstice lesson to add to the collection please let Deanna know!
