Writing Pin 2: Scene of the Crime Writing: Set up a fake crime scene. Then have all the children to gather around and examine the scene of the crime. After they have all looked at the crime scene have them return to their desk and tell them to write a story about what they thought happened. This will make some interesting stories, but I would use this in only 4th or 5th grade.

set up a 'crime scene'-students draw inferences, writing project, and/or do some related forensic science experiments ~ love this idea. maybe not a crime scene for my kiddos but something similar

Great idea for fairy tales!  Using white butcher paper, the teacher wrote "Once up a time" at the beginning of the sheet, and "The end" at the end.  Kids drew and wrote a story in between:)

Love this idea from Delights and Designs… You could easily extend this for more able pupils to contain more word types.    Children are encouraged to come up and pick a word from the teacher. They then place the stick in the correct pot. To further extend, they could then pick a word from each cup and create a sentence. Perfect for assessment!

parts of speech word sort {language arts}--Kids each come up and pick a stick out of my hand and they would have to place it in the right cup! If there’s extra time, they can use the word in a sentence

Using a "BFG + Dream Jars" (write titles of favorite books on the jars) is a creative idea for designing a reading corner in your classroom. This would be a perfect idea for a fourth grade classroom.
