Ugly Christmas Sweaters For Elementary

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas trees, tinsel, ornaments, and my favorite trend, ugly Christmas sweaters! 

These are becoming more and more popular every year and I always loved it when my students would wear their own to school. Nothing brings the holiday spirit to school quite like a garish holiday sweater. The students think it’s hilarious! 

As any teacher knows, when we include things students love in our lesson plans, engagement in classwork goes up. That being said, I knew it would be perfect if I combined that love of Ugly Christmas sweaters with learning.

So I created this Ugly Christmas Sweater Writing Activity!

Once they are ready to design, just copy and paste the movable parts to create their sweater. It comes with 14 backgrounds to choose from. 

After that, use the 6 included slides to allow students to brainstorm, organize their thoughts, and write a story about their Christmas sweater. This can be a narrative, persuasive, or opinion paper about their sweater.

You can even make it extra fun by organizing a vote to pick the ugliest Christmas sweater!
