Product Description
Want to assess your students' knowledge of verbs?! Check out creative resource!

Complete with 21 "School News" templates, instructions for use, ways to assess, and "extra element" ideas for stories - your students will go crazy for such a fun activity! Students were asking to do more before we even finished!!

These look great in B/W or printed on colored paper. We did this after only a 3 day review of verbs before moving on to other parts of speech but would make a great end of unit for an earlier grade or as quick review for an older grade.

Students write a news article based on the template (picture) they receive an one "extra element" that must be included in their story! for example - one student had a picture of a bridge and her story must include "an unlimited supply of candy" so she came up with the Sweetest Bridge. Upon completion, students color code types of verbs based on the teacher's discretion. We had each type of verb one color for the whole class for ease of use. Our class completed a gallery walk to check out other's work as well.

These templates can be used for many other writing or reading assignments as well. I plan to keep them and use them for another grammar assignment at least further in the year since it will be easy to do after explaining it this once!

Give your students a breath of fresh air with this fun assignment!

If you liked this, it pairs great with my Parts of Speech Posters that we print off for our notebooks.
