Christmas Tree and Writing Freebies!

I am VERY excited about the holidays, but I feel like I still have so much to cover before Winter Break! I'm sure y'all are feeling the same way. :) So, I thought that I would try to bring some holiday cheer into my Language Arts lessons. I have been working on adjectives with my students, and they seem to be grasping it pretty well. They know that an adjective describes a noun, and they can identify the adjectives in sentences. So, now I want them to create their own SPARKLING ADJECTIVES!!!

I am going to have each student create their own Christmas tree pictures. I found an awesome Christmas tree made out of hearts on Marcia's blog at I love how ADORABLE it is, and it could be made across multiple grade levels. Thanks for the great idea!
I will even pull out my glitter and sequins and let the kids really go all out with it! :) Hmmmmm....I may regret the mess later... ;)
Then, after they have created a beautiful tree, they are going to describe it using as many SPARKLING ADJECTIVES as possible. I usually tell the kids to use Amazing Adjectives but I like Sparkly because it is more holidayish! :)

Here are some Language Arts freebies to get them started...You could post their artwork and stories in the hall or take a daily Language Arts grade. There is one assessment page too. Click on the freebies to download them from our store. 
Students can brainstorm their adjectives here

Have fun and I hope you enjoy the freebie!
