Rainy Day Boredom Buster: DIY Story in a Bag

Story bags. Fill bags with random items, have the students use them to come up with a story. How fun and using lots of imagination

Story Sticks. Yellow = character, Red = conflict, Green = setting, Blue = “Special” Choose one of each and then make up a story based on what you’ve got.

Language Cops in the Classroom? How To Set Up a Classroom Crime Scene (and 8 Language Activities You Can Do with It)

Vocabulary idea - students have a vocab word on head and have to walk around room and ask synonym, antonym, rhyming word etc... to guess their word. Could do this with sight words too! Ahhh love it!!


Paper Bag Characterization

Paper Bag main character project - put research questions on the outside, put items to represent character on the inside

Have students pick a character from a book and look for adjectives, in the story, that descripe that character. Can do individually or in small groups

Girls must find 20 adjectives that describe themselves! Could be revamped to go along with the aMUSE journey. Maybe have the girls list the roles they play or have the other girls list something they like about the girl.

I would use this to introduce how you can make inference when reading a story. Students would make inferences on how the man is acting, why he is acting that way, what they think he is up to, etc.

All the activities are laminated and Velcroed to the board. Students can take off the assignment to complete it and then return it. The Velcro also allows the teacher to change out the assignments to change throughout the year to match the current units and interests of the students.

A fun and simple way to teach children how to read and write those words that just don't "play fair" + some great links....
