Writing Pin 2: Scene of the Crime Writing: Set up a fake crime scene. Then have all the children to gather around and examine the scene of the crime. After they have all looked at the crime scene have them return to their desk and tell them to write a story about what they thought happened. This will make some interesting stories, but I would use this in only 4th or 5th grade.

I give each of the kids a page with a different idiom on it and then we put all the pages together to make a class book. They love to check it out from the book bin!

If I were trapped in a snow globe. Use a plastic bowl or plate & epsom salt. Love!

snowball fight - kids write 3 things about themselves on a sheet of white paper (or maybe how they spent their vacation?), but they don't write their name. throw the "snowballs" for a few minutes, then pick up the ball closest to you. try and figure out who wrote what!! what a fun first day back from winter break activity!
