Million Dollar Stories
When it comes to writing, no student can pass up working on Million Dollar Stories with this idea.
When my students are working in writer's workshop, I ask them focus on the skills we have been studying. This helps them create masterpieces.
If I see a student that is making an amazing story I give them the "bling" glasses and we hang up their story on the board.
They really love it because I take their photo. I tell them that famous authors get their photos taken for their books, so we need a picture for their story.
This has been great for Kindergarten through 2nd Grade... but I would think it would work for just about any age student.
Wouldn't you want to write well if it was this fun?
