So simple, but so effective! Motivate ALL writers and, even the most reluctant. 42 weeks of strips, including seasonal prompts, so you have choices and enough for summer school.
I shared these with the teachers at my school and they were a hit! I assigned one strip per week and let students share them on Friday.
I printed four colored sheets for my class (24 students), cut the strips, and then distributed them. If I was in a hurry, I let the students cut them apart!
Each student kept the strip as a bookmark until ready to paste them into their notebooks. As students wrote their stories, they sketched the emojis where they would later paste them. Having the free square for their own-created emoji was helpful for students to have some freedom to add to their stories – and so cute!
Use these in your writing centers or for morning writing. You will be surprised at how much fun students will have writing these rebus-style stories!
