Over the years, I've come to realize that you've got to give your students a pretty good reason as to why they are to do something...especially WRITING! Most importantly, you've got to instill that mindset the first week of school!
I created this Power Point presentation as a way to do just that. The Minions theme makes it fun. I even attached the Minions' Banana song. That will get their attention!
The Power Point covers eight reasons why writing is important to the students. For example: we are social beings and desire to belong and feel connected, writing improves communication skills, writing helps to build confidence in yourself and your voice, and writing helps you review and remember recently learned material.
I've included short explanations for all eight reasons.
