Winter Writing Paper and Winter Word Bank

I try to have my students write as much as possible so I designed a winter word bank for my students to use along with a super sentence page.   Before winter break, we practiced writing with lots of detail.  I would write three simple sentences that made a very short story.  I modeled many times how to make it better and add detail.  Then I would give my students three simple sentences and they had to add more detail.  I gave them 10-15 minutes to write in their spiral notebook.  We took turns sharing our stories.  Everyone wanted to share because they were so proud of their stories! 

Here is an example that I wrote on the Board.

I went to the mountains.
I played in the snow.
It was fun.

This is what one of my students wrote.  The copy wasn't very dark so I typed it up.

One Saturday morning I went to the mountains with my big brother.  My brother and I made a fantastic snowman.  We gave him a carrot for a nose and rocks for the eyes, mouth,and buttons also sticks for the arms.  I had a marvolus,wonderful, and awesome time and I hope I can go again next month. ( I love how he spelled marvelous!)  By Mauricio

A great resource to use is Draw then Write book by Evan-Moor.  It helps students write a complete sentence.


If you are looking for reviews for grammar skills, check out my spiral reviews. This Daily ELA Spiral Review is a great way to start the day with your second grade students! It is designed to help the students get extra practice and review grammar skills that have been taught in class. I like these spiral reviews because they are on half sheets of paper and in black and white.  Many questions are formatted like the state test. Click on the picture and it will take you to my TPT store.
