December: "Sharing Christmas Joy!"

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff

Date Submitted: April 12, 2001

Have your students sit in groups of four. Give each student a blank sheet of paper and a lined sheet of paper. Set your timer for 1 minute. Have each student take out their blank piece of paper and start drawing a picture of a Christmas scene. Perhaps some may choose to draw the inside of a home, a tree by a fireplace, or an outdoor winter scene. At the end of one minute, call "time" and have each student pass their paper to the person on their left and begin the timer again, instructing your students to "add" to the picture that was drawn previously. Continue this procedure until everyone in the group has had a turn to add the the original picture of each student's. Your students will be so excited to see how each person in the group added to their original drawing. NOW, have your students take out their lined sheets of paper. Looking at their hand-drawn picture, instruct your students to begin a story about this picture. This time, set your timer for approximately 2-5 minutes, depending on the age and ability of your students. Once the timer goes off, have them pass it on to the next person in the group and continue this procedure just as you did the first time. Be sure to include each "author and illustrator's" name on the finished project and hang on your new bulletin board!
