Workshop Wednesday: Christmas Graphic Organizers

Sorry I'm late to my BBB Jivey's Workshop Wednesday! This time of year gets so crazy!
http://ideasbyjivey.blogspot.com/2013/12/workshop-wednesday-seasonal-reading.html
I wanted to share some seasonal reading activities I've been using in my classroom: Christmas Themed Graphic Organizers For Reading!
We completed these Stocking Stuffers for Brian from Hatchet (we're in the middle of the novel). What would Brian want to see in his stocking? I thought for sure some students would say cell phones or video games. They came up with very practical items and supported their thinking-I think they're becoming critical thinkers!!!
(Oops-this one says Brain! haha) I love the insect repellent! Brian gets eaten alive after he crashes. 
We analyzed Wilson Bentley from Snowflake Bentley-perfect story for this time of year. I blogged about this book and additional resources here.  
Look at some of those traits: tenacious and bright with quotes for text evidence! Yay!
The student featured below told me she tried to think "out of the box" with her traits! (so cute)
Mature, tolerant, determined, and honorable (all with quoted evidence). I think they were motivated to do well on this assignment because I told them they could color/outline their gift packages when they finished!  
I have these "gifts" displayed out in our hall way-I love showing off their hard work!

Go check out Jivey's Workshop Wednesday for additional goodies!

  3. Those are great responses for Brian. I love to read Hatchet, we will start in January. I might even have them still think up gifts for him even though we will be past the holidays.
