Freezing temperatures, snow falling on the ground? The holiday is over but winter is here to stay. So, since the weather conditions really help, let us and our students, enjoy the reminisces of the winter holiday in a creative way! Here are two fun writing activities that your students will definitely like:
Diary of a Snowflake (for gymnasium students)
Step 1- Class discussion: Tell your students to first pretend they are snowflakes and brainstorm characteristics they might have.
Step 2 – Writing journal entries: Ask your students to jot down events in their lives as snowflakes. They could begin with the day they were born then continue with other events in a chronological order.
2015 Goals(for high-school students)
Tell your students to come up with 10 New Year’s Resolutions and beef the list up by also including the reason why they set each goal. To help them start you can suggest some points your students could include. Here are a few examples:
- Top 5 Things TO DO/ online slots Top 5 Things NOT TO DO

- Books I want to read this year.
