Write an informational paragraph while creating a craft! Your third grade, fourth grade, or fifth grade students will love using this sandwich analogy to build a better paragraph. As they move through the writing process, kids write topic, detail, and concluding sentences on hamburger parts. They then create more parts for elaboration, word choice, and transitions. Expository writing has never been so much fun!
Snowball Fight...kids write 3 things about themselves on a sheet of white paper. They do not write their names on the paper. Wad it up and on your command, have a "snowball" (or baseball) fight. At the end of 1 minute, each student grabs the nearest snowball and tries to guess who wrote it.
Twist this and have your teachers write this for themselves. Edit the questions to reflect your goals for your school year! Fun first day activity: Have kids write a letter to themselves at the end of the year.
