The perfect compliment to a unit of study on personal narratives.
Half the fun of being a kid is monkeying around on the weekends. Why not encourage children to write about what truly matters to them by having your students tell about their funny, unusual, or silly tales from the weekend? You will laugh out loud at some of the tales and enjoy getting to know the families of your students. Great for Daily 5 and/or Writer’s Workshop! Use as a month long unit or throughout the entire year.
