Product Description
Do your kids write simple sentences where they write a noun and a verb? My kids were- I used this packet in my classroom to encourage my students to expand their “normal” sentences into better sentences by focusing on adding adjectives and setting. They have LOVED using these packets and are very excited when I hand them one of these papers.

This pack is built with the intention of using it with your community helpers theme (or any time of the year). It consists of 44 writing organizers with a picture prompt and an area for your student’s writing. Each picture comes with 1 page in color and 1 page in black and white.

How do I use this in my classroom?

When I give them these, we always go over them once the kids are done (this might be part of the reason why they like them). I always make this a contest with them. I tell them when a certain amount of my kids do this perfectly, they will get something for it. So, I have 23 kids in my class. I might tell them that when 21 of the 23 of them get it perfect, we will have a “prize.” Our latest one was an afternoon of playing educational games. When we go through these, I ALWAYS tell my kids that we are NOT going over these to show who cannot do it. I tell them that we CANNOT LEARN to become better if we do not know what mistakes we are making. I let them know that it is OKAY to make the mistakes AS LONG as they learn from them. I have never had kids put other kids down during this time- they are extremely encouraging and uplifting.
