Christmas is, of course, the theme for our writing projects in the Creative Writing Club this month. Last week, members learned about adjectives by coloring and decorating a snowman. Then they wrote a “Lost” poster describing their snowman using as many adjectives as they could. Afterwards, the lost posters and snowmen were mixed up so that members could read the descriptions and try and find which snowman matches it. This week, members wrote a letter to Santa using adjectives to describe exactly what they want for Christmas.
Members tried their hand at describing how to make holiday food. They each had a choice of writing how to make either a turkey or a pie. One member wrote how to make a strawberry pie:
“I think that you do a pie first, that you put on milk and dough. Then you row the dough and then you put strawberry on it and cook it for 2:00 minutes. And then you decorate and then you put on a little paper plate and eat it.”
