This is an editable powerpoint lesson with moving fireworks. Students love the animated fireworks. Just click once to stop animations.
I use this for a 5 day writing plan, but ideas are included to shorten, or extend the lesson to fit your class. This is a fun way to review prior knowledge - especially after Christmas Break! It also builds cooperation in a caring class and helps students enjoy the writing process. The finished product makes a fun bulletin board. Later, the flip books can be glued inside a journal to keep goals at hand.
This editable PowerPoint includes:
1. Hints and tips in the ‘notes’ section of slides.
2. A whole-group cooperative (Kagan) pre-writing activity for teams
3. Individual drafting.
4. Pairs work on revising and editing.
5. Student samples from 2011 (the first year I did this).
6. Optional extension for essay format.
7. Optional testing goals.
The length of this activity depends on your class's abilities. One year my class finished it as a half day fun activity; other years my third graders have completed it over several days.
Note – I will be updating the date each year. So you can edit on your own, or you may use the updated version.
