Thoughts of camping and a campfire can "spark" those creative juices for students. Grab this campfire themed activity that will engage students while reviewing language skills and literary devices with short, quick writing tasks. The skills included in Campfire Craze Roll-a-Cube are:
-dialogue using quotes
Copy and assemble the Roll-a-Cube and have an activity you can use in a writing center, during group work, or as a quick review during transitions. Word Storm, a quick brainstorming activity, can be used to activate and stretch student thinking. Based on student readiness, it might be helpful to review the target words students will find on the cube using the anchor mat included in the download.
Students roll the cube to see their task. Students can record their ideas in the Campfire Craze booklet included in the download or in their writing journals. Students do not necessarily have to do all six tasks found on the cube. If the same task is rolled, challenge your students to complete the task from another perspective. This encourages students to think flexibly. Or for variety, students can roll the cube again until they get a different task. You decide!
Included in this download:
-Roll-a-Cube (assembly required)
-Target Word Anchor Mat
-Campfire Craze student booklet with Word Storm page and six recording pages (half page size)
