What did you get for Christmas

Yesterday was our first day back after the holiday break.  Of course, 3rd and 4th graders are still excited about sharing what they received for Christmas.  I took the opportunity and turned it into an oral writing activity.  They rephrased the question to come up with a topic sentence and incorporated air punctuation.  They then were required two adders and a concluding sentence.  It was a great activity and the students didn't realize they were working because they were talking about the gifts they loved!
