Do your students have boring writing? Here is a game that helps them practice creativity in their writing.
Students practice showing what happens in their writing rather than telling what happens. Instead of writing, “We won the football game. I was happy.” students will write, “As I saw our winning score on the scoreboard, a smile spread across my face and I leaped into the air like a kangaroo”.
1. Students use their pencil and a paperclip to spin the Topic spinner.
2. Students record which topic they landed on in the first column.
3. Students spin on the Emotion spinner.
4. Students record which emotion they landed on in the emotion column.
5. Students write a sentence about the topic spun that clearly shows the emotion of the topic.
6. Repeat until all rows are filled in.
**students can use the same topic more than once as long as they land on a different emotion.**
There is a PDF version and a word document so you can edit it and make any changes you would like to meet your student's needs.
