Give your students a interactive approach to creative writing! This activity is part of the larger SHARP Portfolio bundle. Student learn the characteristics of the 3 main styles of writing: Narrative, Informational, and Argument - all while using fun and quirky prompts.
The best part about this activity is the chance to get to know your students better. I will keep this activity in my classroom for a long time. It has been the gateway to knowing my students lives, their passions, their families, and what concerns them most.
Included in this resource:
-Prezi to use in your classroom, talking briefly about creative writing and the three styles of writing
-Teacher Instruction Pages with helpful hints and full details
- Photos of the final product

This activity can stand alone, but it is best used as part of the SHARP portfolio - a year long interactive notebook for your ELA classroom. The SHARP portfolio shows off your students growth in literacy and as a thinker.
