Year of the Sheep 2015 Writing Prompts

Chinese New Year 2015 schoolChinese New Year 2015 is the Year of the Sheep and here is the perfect writing prompt craft to help your students celebrate. 

You will find 5 sheep prompts that you can print “as is” and the student will color the animal and write on the topic. 

The first topic asks the student to imagine being the animal, the second topic asks the student to imagine having one of the animal’s traits, the next prompt is for students who have seen the animal at a farm, the next prompt asks the students to describe climbing like a wild sheep, the next prompt states that 2015 is the Year of the Sheep, and the last topic lists the letter of the alphabet that corresponds with the animal. 

Use this prompt for students to list additional words that begin with the same letter, assign your own topic, or let students come up with their own topic. You can also use the 28 Word Wall Words about the Chinese New Year at the end of the packet.

Next, you will find the same topics formatted for a page topper. If you choose these prompts, add the animal image after those prompts and the decorations if you wish. You can either print these animal page toppers on colored paper or ask your students to color or paint them.
