This is a creative way to teach leads for writer's workshop! I take a picture of the students making muscles and have a word bubble coming out of their mouth with their best lead. This year, I used the topic of Halloween. The students had to pick one type of lead: dialogue,setting, or action. I used this as a bulletin board idea and titled it Strong Leads! The kids have a lot of fun and they realize the importance in writing a strong lead to hook their readers!
