Description

Alphaboxes are a great way to quickly assess how much attention your kids have been paying- during a lesson, unit, school year, etc.

Students think on a particular topic and come up with a word for each letter of the alphabet that relates to that topic. They then write a paragraph using a minimum number of words they wrote down to explain what they have learned about the topic.

I also have students Think, Pair, Share in two different ways with this activity. If my kiddos are having a hard time thinking of words I let them think on their own, pair up with a partner, and share the words they have come up with before writing their paragraph. That way they can get some more words to work with and see what other students are thinking.

If they are doing fine on their own I let them do the activity independently (Think). When everyone is through writing their paragraph I have them pair up and read each other's work so that they can edit. Finally, I have everyone share their paragraph about what they learned with the class.

I included 4 versions of this product so you can use what works best for your class:

  • Directions state use at least 5 words & say write a paragraph. Line spaces are smaller. Designed for upper grades.
  • Directions have a blank for the number of words & say write a paragraph. Line spaces are smaller. Designed for upper grades.
  • Directions state use at least 5 words & say write a sentence. Line spaces are larger. Designed for lower grades.
  • Directions have a blank for the number of words & say write a sentence. Line spaces are larger. Designed for lower grades.
