It’s tough getting my students to write when I give a writing prompt. I recently decided to give my students a task to create first: a Halloween guest, a turkey, a map, a scarecrow. Once they have created their masterpiece it becomes so easy for them to write about it because they have created it and they “own” it! It is also easy to teach the 6 Traits of Writing (ideas, voice, word choice, conventions, organization, and sentence fluency) once they have created. Included in this packet are four projects to create that require minimal supplies. Once the creating is done the writing process begins. Try this new approach to writing. It’s sure to be a creative hit!
Included in this Package:
~Four writing activities with required supplies and mini lesson;
~Writing paper for each writing activity;
~Small prompt on each writing page to get your student writing!
