SNOWBALL COLLABORATIVE WRITING
The snowball writing method is a fun way to teach your students how to write collaboratively. I can guarantee this will be a lesson your students will not forget!
How It Works:
1. Each student gets one of the 30 pre-made worksheets with a different visual story starter. They begin writing the story.
2. After an allotted amount of time, writer one crumples their story up into a "snowball" and throws it to the front of the room.
3. Everyone goes to the front to grab a snowball and they continue to story!
This is done one more time, then it is returned to the original writer for editing, revision, and a final copy on looseleaf/typed! Students always have SO much fun doing this, and they usually can't believe you are letting them crumple up their stories.
WORDS THAT POP: DESCRIPTIVE WRITING
If you are looking for resources to help your students become better descriptive writers, this bundle is for you! The "Using Words That Pop" resource includes everything you need to teach descriptive writing.
• 18 Slide Powerpoint presentation that takes students through the details of descriptive writing.
• 9 page student workbook of fun worksheets that prepare them to teach descriptively.
ROLL A STORY
Students love to write narratives, but sometimes coming up with a creative plot line can be a challenge. Help your students develop creative narratives with this unique Roll A Story Activity!
How It Works:
Students roll the character, setting, and conflict dice / cube.
For example, a student might roll the following:
Character Dice: Zombie or Superhero
Setting Dice: Lab or Castle
Conflict Dice: Person vs Person or Person vs Self
The student would have to choose the setting, character, and conflict type and develop a unique narrative based on those choices!
Also included is a sheet where students can write their good copy (two versions available with different line spacing options).
