Writing and photography activity. Students choose the best part of them and describe what they love. Great for the beginning of the year to get to know students. Must cultivate an appropriate classroom climate first.
Writing Pin Students will fold their paper 4 times. The first fold will have a simple sentence and then each fold they will expand the sentence such as adding an adjective. This way they are learning to be more descriptive writers.
Students design a monster and then practice descriptive writing. Perfect writing project for the Halloween season. Could have kids read aloud and have other students draw what they hear? Practice descriptions and visualization.
