This is an activity I created to compliment our anti-bullying lessons and celebrate what makes us different.
This packet was created to be used by teachers in grades K-5. The materials were designed to make modifications easy within your classroom.
I recently completed this activity with my third graders in school and I LOVE LOVE LOVE how the bulletin board turned out. I've gotten so many compliments on the colors and the content. The differentiated pages and templates that are included made it a perfect activity for both.
These pages are designed to guide students through the writing process by completing a writing project inspired by the book, It's OK to be Different by Todd Parr. You can use it with his book or without to simply celebrate what makes us unique.
After editing with the teacher, the students wrote their final copies. I always try to culminate our writing projects with a related art project. We created colorful images in the style of Todd Parr after visiting his website.
Please visit my blog post dated 1/7/11 at www.CFClassroom.com to see the completed display I put up.
Included in this packet you will find the following items:
-a brainstorming page to collect ideas
-webs to organize paragraph writing
-final product paper
-a simple sentence activity page with space to illustrate for our -youngest learners
