Repost: "Story bags. Fill bags with random items, have the children use them to come up with a story. How fun and using lots of imagination...Good Idea for when I teach Writing Classes" French immersion: use during centres for students to create an oral story based on the items in the bag; can base on current vocabulary theme (e.g., automne, le corps, le Noël, etc)
They picked their favorite book used a piece of cardstock folded to look like a book with a binding. They illustrated the cover, and wrote a brief summary on the back. We read some summaries on the back of some of the books in our class library and the students noticed that many of them ended in questions. We discussed how the questions left you wanting to read more to find out what happens in the book. add their photo & DONE!
