This project takes students through a detailed step by step process to produce a creative introductory writing piece to share with the class for an elementary student.
This project uses a paper plate and construction paper to create a large flower. On each flower petal the students are required to create detailed sentences about themselves to share with the class. This could be great at the beginning of the year, while working on sentence structure, or as an introductory speaking skills lesson to share with the class.
This file contains a materials needed page, a petal to trace, a student direction page on how to create the flower step by step, a guided page that contains sentence starters and directions for what should go on each petal, and a checklist to use for the students as well as the teacher as a grading rubric.
The students loved this project, and I hope you do as well!
