10 Examples of how these Writing Jamboards can be used with students:

  1. After a mini-lesson about writing a seed story, have students add a sticky note with their idea on the Jamboard. Those students without an idea may be inspired by their classmates’ ideas and it’s a lot quicker than having everyone share out loud.
  2. After a lesson about introductions, students will add a sticky note underneath the introduction they’re going to use in their writing before going off to do it. They can even write the actual introduction on the sticky note. 
  3. During a mini-lesson about word choice, students can help create the anchor chart. Students are asked to add a sticky note with a word that can be used instead of the word “Happy" for example.
  4. On the Show vs. Tell Jamboard, include a student example of a sentence that TELLS the reader how a character is feeling. Then have students each use a sticky note to write a better sentence that SHOWS how the character is feeling.
  5. During a mini-lesson about topic sentences, have students respond with an example on a sticky note so you know they’re grasping the concept.
  6. During your opinion unit, have students use a sticky note to show a reason for their opinion. 
  7. On a day you teach about using figurative language in their writing, ask students to add a sticky note with a sentence from their writing where they tried a simile, metaphor, etc. Watch other students be encouraged to incorporate figurative language into their piece so they can share, too! 
  8. Create and project your own Jamboard anchor chart with stickies to show  “No Excuse Words” or create a list of family words or animal words to support your students’ spelling.
  9. Wondering where all of your students are with finishing their pieces? Use the Check-In Jamboards to see exactly where students are to help with your planning and make sure they’re getting support if they need it.
  10. Don’t forget about a writing celebration! Have each of your students put their name on a “Friendly Feedback” or “Round of Applause” Jamboard frame. Give all your students access to the Jamboard and have them go through and add positive comments or suggestions on each of their classmates' frames after they share their writing.

There are so many more ways to use these Jamboards!
