So I know I'm on Spring Break, but our weather here has not been very fabulous. Too windy and rainy to surf:( Anyone who knows me can attest to the fact that I am a Surfaholic, lol! Anyway just wanted to share a cute writing activity that I did recently. I used this simple book by Margaret Wise Browning to discuss adjectives and the use of commas in writing.
The simple straightforward verse makes it simple for any writer to follow the pattern in their own writing. So I had the students choose something that they knew alot about and write their own important story. They really enjoyed writing these, and even my reluctant writers came up with really cute entries.
This is an easily adaptable lesson for K-2, and was perfect for my ELL learners to find the right words to describe. Many of my higher level students asked if they could write another one! This will make a great class book for our classroom library.
