Whenever I add a bit of craftiness to a writing prompt, my students can't wait to get down to business and make one of their own.
They are not only excited, but put that extra effort in to do their very best, as they know I'll be displaying their creations on our "Wall of Fame" in the hallway.
This activity is wonderful at the beginning of the year, as a fun way to get to know your new students.
You can also do it at the end of the year as an interesting wrap up.
If students need one-on-one help with the worksheet, send it home as homework.
Or . . .
you can do this as a whole group activity and read one sentence at a time, while students fill in the blank(s).
Writing words on the board helps with spelling.
I've included a mortarboard template for those of you who want to use this for graduation.
For 3D pizzazz I had my students trace and cut their hand prints to "hold" their bio sheet.
Wiggle eyes stuck on with glue dots added that finishing touch.
I'm Diane from Teach With Me hoping your students enjoy writing prompt craftivities as much as mine do.
