Santa’s Elf Application (Writing Activity)

Santa's Elf STICKER

Kids crack me up. They say, write and do the silliest things! Here’s another opportunity to capture all that creativity. This writing activity asks kids to apply to be one of Santa’s elves. Be sure to give kids an opportunity to share their application with other students. Maybe have the kids collect “endorsements” from classmates (Have students write their name on the back of a classmate’s paper to indicate that the student shared it with them). Merry Christmas!

Spring Story Starter (with planning page)

Spring story starter STICKERThis picture was too cute not to use. So I turned it into a story starter for spring. Have your students review the parts of a story and then plan each part of their story (using the attached planning page) before they get to work on any of their drafts. Once they’ve had a peer edit it, and they’ve written their final draft, they can color the large version of the picture and display it with their final piece. Super fun, and super cute. What’s not to love!?

Dog in a Bath Tub (Silly Story Starter)

Dog in a Bath Tub STICKERI can’t wait to try this idea! The prompt is a picture: a dog in a bath tub. Students should plan each part of the story (setting, characters, problem, solution) and then put together a rough draft. This will work nicely with a unit on parts of a story.
