Kids will love writing time with this 15 unit "I Can Only Imagine..." packet. Designed for 4th, 5th and 6th graders. This packet covers 75 vocabulary words, analogies, definitions, a teacher grading sheet, student organizational sheets and drawing prompts. Each unit contains a worksheet for students to learn 5 weekly vocabulary words that are revealed using a code. Then students practice their understanding through matching their definitions, analogies and words in sentences.
Next, students use their imagination and artistic skills to think of a story and draw a picture using a drawing prompt. A great way for kids who love to draw to use their talents and shine in the classroom. They become role models for others and build their confidence.
Then, students write their imaginative stories. In this section, the kids who are great writers can get a chance to be role models as they directly and indirectly model and help the emergent writer build his or her skills as stories are shared with each other or the entire class. A peer editing checklist helps keep students focused on some basic writing skills.
This product can be used as a writing center or as a whole group lesson and can easily be adapted to include different writing genres you may be required to cover. The 15 units can be done weekly or spread out biweekly to make for a 30 week Z"I Can Imagine..." Writing Center.
Parents and kids love to see this book at the end of the year. It's also great way to have writing documentation to show the growth students have made throughout the year.
