Xmas Projects for Visualization in Reading and Writing

We know that when our students can visualize, their writing is descriptive and engaging.  Here are two seasonal projects teachers can do:

1. Create a rebus letter to Santa.

  • This can be done using applications of Notebook, PowerPoint, Keynote, Word or Pages
  • add text and images to create the letter
  • extend the activity by asking students to include sound effects

 

2. Create a iMove

  • find a winter poem, and create an iMovie
  • find images, and sound effects
  • record the poem in iMovie
  • add effects and transitions
  • extension: have students create a movie for their own poemsSeasonal activities do not need to be crafts and music, try using WWP applications to create unique and engaging activities.
