Seventh Assignment/ Due by Friday

Dear Fifth Graders,

What is your favorite winter memory? I would like you to write a SHORT paragraph describing your favorite winter memory..... was it traveling? Sledding? Snoshoeing? Looking for deer tracks? Decorating your house for the holiday? A gathering with family and friends?

Here is mine.....

My favorite winter memory, was not of a time where it was wet and sloppy outside, but it was a memory when it was actually hot and sunny! When I was in fifth grade, my family and I traveled to Arizona for the holidays. When we arrived, my eyes were full of amazement. Who would have thought that you would have put holidays lights on a Christmas tree!?? I thought that it was so different to see the houses decorated and glittered in a different fashion. I traded my snowpants and hats for shorts and a bathing suit. We visited with my grandparents for the week, and spent the week swimming, shopping, golfing, searching for golf balls and opening gifts. It was fun to experience a holiday without snow. I love the warm weather, so this was the perfect holiday for me!
