I know I mentioned that my No Cost Gift writing was a favorite of the season, but my Snow Globe project is on the top of my list too. I have my students do this as a take home project, but you can also complete it in class. Students create a character inside their snow globe and then write a story about how the character came to be inside it. The stories always turn out fabulous! My favorite story was one titled, "My Teacher, Ms. Talbott, in the Snow Globe". I've saved that one in my FOREVER file. I'll have to dig it out and post it for you...it's adorable I must say.
