Writing Activities for Pajama Day at School
We have Pajama Day at school next week and I wanted to some activities for my students to do that related to the theme. I created one idea which then turned into seven…. I am excited to try some of these ideas with my first graders next week.
Writing Activities for Pajama Day
Me and My PJs
Students write about the pajamas they are wearing using descriptive language. I tell my students that by reading their writing, a guest in the classroom should be able to identify their pajamas!

Pair up students and have them record the similarities and differences between each other’s pajamas.

With this activity, students have to walk around the classroom and see what sorts of pajamas their classmates are wearing. For example, students need to write the name of one classmate in the circle that says, “wearing footie pajamas.” They then find another classmate that is “wearing pink pajamas” and write that classmate’s name in that circle.
How to Host a Pillow Fight
Students write the steps for hosting a pillow fight using the words first, next, then, after that and finally.
The Monster Under My Bed
This activity can be done a number of different ways. The first, is a descriptive writing activity about a monster under the bed. Another as a creative writing activity about how the monster got under the bed or, a third, a problem with the monster under the bed and a fourth, something the student and monster do together. For monster book suggestions, see our post Book Mama: Monsters Under the Bed: 6 Books for Overcoming Fears of Monsters
