Product Description

Six-word Memoirs promote critical thinking and are a perfect writing activity for any time of year—Back to School, Meet the Teacher, Grandparents' Day and more!

Students learn how to think deeply about a topic, how to summarize, and how to revise.

When revising an idea to just six words, they improve their vocabulary and word choice.

This product has three parts (all pdf files):

  • A slideshow overview with background information for the teacher and student.
  • Graphic Organizers and Writing Prompts to Promote Critical Thinking and Writing Skills
  • Bulletin Board signs and Exit Tickets. Also tips for using technology to display.
  • This activity encourages higher-level thinking and vocabulary development. Walk your students through the thinking process with 7 different brainstorming activities.

    The Think Sheets promote higher-level thinking skills and will help your students create truly memorable memoirs that use figurative language and symbolism.

    Literature Memoirs are an effective formative assessment. Students can summarize what they've read, describe a character or setting, or identify the conflict.

    Six-word Memoirs also make great Exit-Tickets and Bulletin Boards. Parents and Grandparents love seeing them at Open House and Grandparents' Day!
