Looking for an awesome figurative language activity and a brilliant bulletin board idea for Thanksgiving?
Here is a gobblin’ good project that requires students to write a short story prompted by an onomatopoeia term.
Print enough of the two tear tab sheets for your class. Hang them around your room. Each tab contains a different Thanksgiving themed example of onomatopoeia.
Students can “turkey trot” to the posters to tear a tab from the poster and create a short Thanksgiving themed story based on the word they chose.
There are two options for the writing. Students can create a story of their own using the single onomatopoeia word they chose OR
students can work in pairs to create a story together. To make it more fun and challenging, have the pairs each create a sentence at a time to build their story. This option should include two onomatopoeia terms altogether - one that each partner chose.
