Here’s a versatile
writing prompt craftivity your students are sure to enjoy, that works for the beginning of the year as a “getting to know you”
icebreaker, as well as for the end of the year
, when you’re looking for something fun for those last few weeks.
Since there are several options, you can certainly do more than one.
If you opt for the craftivity where students trace their hands and feet, these dorky dudes & dudettes, are also great for some Wacky Wednesday
fun, during a Seuss
celebration or any other wacked out Wednesday, you decide you need something different to get your students excited about writing.
There are 5 T-shirt
writing prompt patterns:
* “If money were no object, these are some of the “T-‘rrific” things I’d like to do:”
* * “I’ve learned and done a lot of “T-‘rrific” things this year like . . .”
* “I did some “T-‘rrific” things this summer . . .”
* “I saw and did a lot of “T-‘rrific” things this summer . . .”
* “Here’s some “T-‘rrific” advice:”
I’ve also included a completed sample
, plus a blank
Run the T-shirts off on a variety of colors of construction paper, or for a bit more pizzazz, use scrapbook paper, or printed copy paper with blended colors or a cool design.
Suspend a rope
on a hallway wall and clip the T-shirts to it using clothespins.
If you use the “advice” T-shirt this would be a sweet, “back-to-school”
display welcoming your new students.
Likewise, instead of making an entire person, you could have students simply do a pair of shorts
and clip those to a clothesline as well.
Explain to your students that the term “In short”
means to explain briefly
There are 5
, writing prompt patterns of the shorts
to choose from:
* “A short list of what I want to do this summer:”
* “A short list of what I did this summer:”
“A Short Story About Summer”
* “A Short Story By …”
“In short you’re going to have a great year in ___________ because…”
* “In short, these are the things I enjoyed this year:”
The 2 larger T-shirt patterns, go with the shorts.
* “It’s “T-‘rrific Getting To Know ________________.”
* “I’m a “T-‘rrific Person!”
Choose one for your students then match it up with a pair of shorts.
These can remain “headless” and glued together then hung on the line, or . . .
You can take a photo
of each student wearing wacky sunglasses, then enlarge them on the copier, or …
have them draw a selfie portrait
using the head pattern
For added wackiness, have students trace one hand and foot on a folded sheet of construction paper, so that they only need to cut once to have a pair.
Give them a variety of bright or neon-colored options to add to the crazy look.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping that you find the many options in this packet useful, and that your students truly enjoy writing because of a little splash of wacky.
