This download includes an engaging way to prepare your students for the revising and editing portion of their fourth grade writing tests! This is a boot camp themed resource that will challenge your students and encourage team work and collaboration. It is formatted the same way that they will see their writing tests. Everything comes with recording sheets, keys, and instructions. Also included are "scripted" instructions to read to the students to get them into the boot camp theme. Please feel free to ask any questions!
There are four activities included:
Students will work together to save all of the injured sentences from the war zone! Nobody gets left behind!
An entire composition has fallen behind enemy lines! The students must go in one at a time to rescue the sentences that have been separated from their comrades! Then they must put the sentences back in their correct order. But they must beware of the spies (off topic sentences) that will try to disguise themselves and make it back into the composition!
-Sentence Structure Shape Up
Students will work through several "obstacle course" stations that each involve sentence structure questions as well as a physical activity. Any incorrect answers will result in seconds being added to their time!
-Crack the Code
Students will work through a series of tasks that will give them code letters if they choose the correct answers. If they fill out their recording sheet correctly, they should be able to crack the code and claim their reward! This activity can be done with a letter lock and lock box to up the engagement!
