Some of the websites also provide lesson plans. I think this is worth pinning because it gives me the option to look through different websites and pick the one that I think will work best to evaluate my students.

Paint Chip Poetry: Use paint swatches for writing a descriptive color poem!
Paint Chips, Paint Swatch, Teaching Poetry, Creative Writing, Chip Poetry
Focus: Writing- Descriptive writing. Directions: Have students pull out a random paint sample. They will tell the color and explain what it resembles. Example: Yellow is the color of the cheese the mouse ate. Source:http://mrshallfabulousinfourth.blogspot.com/2013/02/paint-chip-poetry.html
Have a different color swatch for each student and have them draw from a hat. Have the kids use their different description strategies for each color. #BellRinger
Writing on paint sample strips...absolutely for teaching poetry, imagery, similes, metaphors
I love using paint chips! I have used them in the past for books marks, reading incentives, and for brainstorming synonyms. I used them last week to write Color Poems. The kids wrote a metaphor and three similes describing a color. They came out awesome! Check out my color poetry post from last year! I read some trade books and we talked about how colors represent emotions and feelings. I read the books and used the chart. The next thing that the kids did was pick a paint chip. They used the following sheet to brainstorm their ideas. Click for link: I used a sheet from Writing Fix. The kids wrote similes using their senses. They picked three similes that fit their metaphor. (I did conference with them, although the mistakes reappeared!) Here are some published poems:

Loose take off of The Little Red Hen - good book for teaching point of view The Little Red Pen: Janet Stevens, Susan Stevens Crummel: 9780152064327: Amazon.com: Books
"The Little Red Pen" by Janet Stevens--Poor Little Red Pen! She can't possibly correct a mountain of homework all by herself. Who will help her? "Not I!" says Stapler. "Not I!" says Eraser. "¡Yo no!" says Pushpin, AKA Señorita Chincheta. But when the Little Red Pen tumbles in exhaustion...
"The Little Red Pen" - Susan Stevens Crummel/Janet Stevens - A good book to teach personification!
another fractured fairy tale...my kiddos asked for this one over and over!
Stevens, Janet and Susan Stevens Crummel The Little Red Pen. Harcourt Children's Books, 2011. 56 pgs. PICTURE BOOK. The teacher has gone home, and the Little Red Pen is worried; she must grade all of the papers overnight or she fears the world will come to an end. She tries to cajole the other office supplies into helping, but no one wants to take on the task. When the pen falls into the dreaded Place of No Return (otherwise known as the trash can), the other office supplies must work together to rescue her. They then team up to grade the remaining papers before morning comes. The book's illustrations are engaging and vibrant, and the authors' sense of humor is hilarious, although some of the puns may be lost on young readers. The lessons - that we all have special skills, and that we must work together to accomplish great things - are wonderful. This book is more appropriate for advanced readers, as the many characters can become confusing for younger students, especially when each one chimes in so frequently. In the right hands it would make for a fun (though long) read-aloud. EL - ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Caryn.
Summary: The story begins with the classic Little Red Hen ("not I," said the stapler and the scissors). The Little Red Pen needs help grading papers but the other desk inhabitants, Stapler, Scissors, Highlighter, Pencil, Eraser, Pushpin and Ruler don't want to help. The story soon moves from the Little Red Hen theme and into a wacky rescue adventure after the little red pen accidentally falls into the trash. The trash can is known as "the pit of no return."Although her friends previously grumbled when she tried to enlist their help, they don't hesitate to come to her rescue, with hilarious results. And at the end, everyone pitches to save the little red pen and make sure that huge pile of student papers gets graded! Mrs. Garza's Thoughts: Out of the many pictures books written by Janet Stevens and Susan Stevens Crummel, The Little Red Pen has to be one of my favorites! The dialogue between each of the different characters is absolutely hilarious! The illustrations bring the story to life. The Little Red Pen definitely depicts an overworked teacher that has a million papers to grade. My favorite character is the Pushpin named Senorita Chincheta. I think it makes the story even funnier with her Spanish dialogue!! The story also portrays the importance of teamwork. Teamwork can build friendships and achieve many goals!
