Here is a writing component to go with Reading Street's Dot and Jabber and the Great Acorn Mystery. This activity would also be great for a fall writing lesson. Students will choose to write either about acorns or maple tree seeds. They will use their background knowlege to complete either a four square graphic organizer or a fill in the blank sentence organizer. To finish the activity, the students will create an acorn or maple seed paper craft using a template and torn construction paper. Please feel free to download the preview for a closer look!
