My Home Writing Prompt Craftivity

"My Home" is a quick, easy and fun writing prompt “craftivity”, perfect when studying about neighborhoods or families.

At the beginning of the year, it's also a great “getting to know you” icebreaker.

Colored and trimmed houses make a cute bulletin board too.

Students write their family's last name at the top, write the number of members in their family and then draw a labeled picture of them. Inform children that they can include pets as well.

Kiddos glue a photograph of themselves in the window. For the door, they complete the writing prompt: "My favorite room is…" and then explain why.

Some schools still have "knowing their address” as a standard, so I've included a window for that as well.

Even though it’s not one of my standards, I still have children work on learning their address during Fire Safety Week. This activity provides a fun way to practice.
