Think and Writes are a great tool for students to make connections about the world around them. They use real photographs and require students to use higher order thinking skills.
This plant-themed pack includes the skills: Same and Different, What Doesn't Belong, List, Here's the Answer, and I See. Each skill has 2 activities with 3 different levels of differentiation to meet your students' needs.
I use these daily as bell work for my English Language Learners. I find they love to learn the new vocabulary, make the connections, and feel successful with their writing abilities. Think and Writes could be used as bell work, closures, transition activities, task cards, and/or for early finishers.
