8 whole class journals for the students to write in. Select 8 students each week to write in one of the journals. The next week, 8 different children will be selected to write, and so on. By the time were finished, each journal should have about 25 different entries written in them. Students will be able to read what their classmates have written as well.
Teaches kids how to use adjectives and allows them a chance to get used to standing up in front of a classroom full of children. A shy child could be a possible downfall of completing this activity to its fullest extent.
Good ideas for setting up class and beginning of the year writing project...Also a great way to let the students think of the good qualities of themselves instead of focusing on the bad...This was a GREAT lesson!
friday journals - students write a note on friday to their parents telling what they learned that week, and parents write a short response back to their child, and the journal comes back monday. for every parent response, students get a sticker to add to the cover. great way to get parents involved and have students take more ownership of their learning!
This is a great first day/week activity for getting to know students, and they will love it because it involves candy! They randomly choose an M out of the bag, depending on the color they choose they will answer a question about themselves. If some students do not like chocolate you could use Skittles instead. 0642
