Would be great for sequencing or planning a writing piece. I can see my lower functioning students drawing a picture for each, or cutting/pasting pictures or phrases while higher functioning students write sentences.
Fill the bags with random items, have the children use them to come up with a story. It would be a great writing center activity, and you can so easily differentiate based on what items you chose. Love this idea!
love this for primary writing-- could adapt according to writing expectations in your own classroom (what do authors do? have words, have illustrations, words and pictures match, fearlessly spell, use punctuation, have spaces between words...)
