The holidays are an exciting time for children in the classroom and the home. The rich history and fun celebrations of holidays make students excited both for parties and learning. The Writing Prompts for Holidays series is a collection of imaginative situations and questions related to 20 major holidays, including Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, and more. Third Grade Writing Prompts for Holidays is a workbook that will help third grade students to start developing their creative writing skills. Holidays sections in the book include:
"Any news, mother?" asked Edna one Friday afternoon when she came home from school. "There's a letter from grandma," replied Mrs. Conway after kissing the lips held up to hers. "There isn't any real news in it, but there is an invitation." "What kind of an invitation?" "A Thanksgiving kind." "Oh, mother, what do you mean?"
"Hello, Dolly," said Dotty Rose, over the telephone."Hello, Dot," responded Dolly Fayre. "What you want?""Oh! I can't tell you this way. Come on over, just as quick as you can.""But I haven't finished my Algebra, and it's nearly dinner time, anyway.""No it isn't,-and no matter if it is. Come on, I tell you! You'd come fast enough if you knew what it's about!""Tell me, then.""I say I can't,-over the telephone. Oh, Dolly, come on, and stop fussing!"The telephone receiver at Dotty's end of the wire was hung up with a click, and Dolly began to waggle her receiver hook in hope of getting Dotty back. But there was no response, so Dolly rose and went for her coat. Flinging it round her, and not stopping to get a hat, she ran next door to Dotty Rose's house.It was mid January, and the six o'clock darkness was lighted only by the street lights. Flying across the two lawns that divided the houses, Dolly found Dotty awaiting her at the side door.
