PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Collab-O-Writing is a COMPLETE activity where students work to create a story by passing it around the room, adding a line at a time. The Creative Writing activity is completed in silence- willingly! Some teachers call it a progressive story or "an exquisite corpse."This particular Collab-O-Writing lesson focuses on TRANSITIONS.

This PowerPoint is the basis of the lesson. The EATS lesson plan (tied to the Writing Common Core Standards) as well as the story starter worksheets ARE INCLUDED.

In the 21-page packet is a "Notes and Hints" page, 17 Story Starters, 1 Time-Keeper Sheet and 1 sheet of 6 Exit Tickets. Simply print the 17 sheets, pass them out and begin. (If you have 26 students in a class, I suggest printing 1-13 and making a copy. Each student gets a sheet.) Everything you need for the lesson is included.

This lesson has all the hints and rules for everything to run smoothly. The EATS Lesson plan in Learning Focused format- with Essential Questions, Activating Strategies, Summarizing Strategy and Exit Tickets. It is aligned with the Common Core. It teaches transitions! It is fun! And this lesson is priced to buy!

Students will experience a lecture via PPT on transitions and get experience using transitions in their writing. This is a collaborative activity, but without the noise and distraction. This is a quick, fun writing activity (that the kids really love). It is PERFECT for the DREADED DAY BEFORE (Christmas, Spring Break and the end of the year)... Actually, I'd start it two days before since students generally beg to read their stories.

Common Core Standards Addressed include:
CC6W3c Use transition words, phrases, and clauses to convey sequence and signal shifts from one time frame or setting to another.
CC6W3c Use a variety of transition words, phrases, and clauses to convey sequence and signal shifts from one time frame or setting to another.

Although students are quiet and having fun, this lesson actually teaches transitions. It's not "busy work."

Thank you and ENJOY!
