Christmas Picture Prompts for the Projector

As I was introducing a few new pages to our overhead projector binder today, I decided the kids have show enough responsibility to begin moving the projector toward our regular board to begin tracing pictures. The kids wanted me to add some Christmas pictures for their prompts. I have long manila paper available for the students to sticky tack to the board and trace the objects from the transparency.

My students are expected to write about whatever picture they choose to trace onto their paper. You wouldn't believe how good they are when they think it might be their turn. :)

Here's a printable to share.
Christmas Writing Prompts for the Overhead

  1. I love the idea of using the projector to get the students writing. Do you do this whole group or is it a center/workstation that your students do independently?
