    This is the CUTEST writing assignment EVER!!! I did this a few years ago and their ideas of my secret life were hilarious!

    Pinner said: After my students write a piece I have them leave it on their desks when they go to lunch or special area classes. I place a Skittle on each correct punctuation mark (and I usually put one or two one if they indent a paragraph). Let me tell you, Skittles are the great motivator!

    Friday Journals--kids write a note on Friday to their parents telling what they learned that week. The parents write a short response back to their child, and the child brings the notebook back Monday. Each parent response earns a sticker for the cover.

    writing rubric

    Have the students make their writing "more colorful" by using paint strips. Write a boring adjective at the bottom of the paint strip on the most boring color. Give each student a paint strip and they can use a thesaurus or a word wall to think of "more colorful" words for their strip. Put the best word on the brightest part of the strip. Hang all of their strips on the door and they can use those words to help "make their writing colorful!"

    Writing Goals - I like this plus it motivates me to do something similar for my Cafe menu rather than having it take up a huge space!

    They each come up and pick a stick out of my hand and they would have to place it in the right cup!  If there’s extra time, they can use the word in a sentence:)
