Looking for Christmas Writing Prompts for Beginning Writers? 

This collection of eight worksheets includes four Christmas-themed writing prompts and two differentiated versions. These worksheets set your students up for success by providing them with the tools they need to write successful sentences about the topic of Christmas.

This resource includes four engaging Christmas writing prompts for kindergarten:

  • Write about how you decorate your Christmas tree.
  • Write a letter to Santa.
  • Write about how you wrap your Christmas gifts.
  • Write a story about being one of Santa’s elves.

Each holiday story starter includes a word bank with words and pictures and a writing checklist for kindergarten writers.

  • I can sound out words.
  • I can use punctuation.
  • I can use capital letters.
  • I can use spaces.

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding  

To challenge students needing acceleration, have them extend their writing into a multi-paragraph piece using some of our paragraph writing resources and templates

For struggling readers and writers, provide sentence frames for students to build their sentences. They could also benefit from talking about their writing before beginning and generating additional words or details that they could include.
