Angry Birds Writing
I decided to cash in on their desire and do some Angry Birds writing with my class.
I'm sure your students are excited about them, too, and you know that if you can hook your students with a game they love their writing will improve in quality and quantity.
While surfing around I found this amazing writing paper and wanted a way to tie it in to my curriculum.
After much pondering I decided that we would use the paper for making some word walls based on themes
So far I've created three word banks with my kids.
- "What ways can you move?"
- "What emotions can you feel?"
- "How can you describe how objects look?"
With each of these banks we've created stories based on the theme.
We wrote "My Rolling Bird", and "My Surprised Bird", and "My Blue Bird"... and so on.
These have made for fun Writer's Workshop lessons and have really expanded my class' ideas on emotions, movement and describing words.
The children are thrilled with the writing lessons - and I'm really enjoying them too.
I'm actually having a blast!
I think my next step is to have them make some books based on their writing and have them go through the whole writing process with their project.
Can you imagine how cute a bunch of these stories would be in your classroom library?
