Children love to tell stories. It seems they always have something to say about everything. They want to be given an opportunity to be heard and a place where they can express their thoughts. Writing messages are a perfect way for students to communicate with each other and with the teacher.
There are seven different message pages that have both blackline masters (where students can color the pages) and also color copies. Two types of lined writing paper are provided and two pages of teaching tips.
Classroom helpers choose a message page:
Student of the Day,
and write whatever message or topic they choose to share with the class.
The other message pages:
Helpful Hints for Our Classroom,
Message to the Teacher,
Nice Things About Our Classroom
are used at stations or centers.
The students who are at that center are encouraged to talk to each other and discuss:
helpful hints that can improve our classroom, nice things that are happening in our classroom, and something that the teacher should know about the classroom or our school (school news only).
Students pick one paper to complete or students can share one page and combine their thoughts and sentences.
