Engaging Writing Activities

One area I want to improve on this coming school year, is the writing center.  I want students to practice specific skills in an engaging hands-on way.  This way I know they are utilizing that center to become better at writing each day.  I wanted to infuse my mini-lessons into their writing activities, so I created activities that will do just that! 

 Lesson:  What makes a sentence?


Lesson:  Stories have characters

Lesson:  Stories have settings

 Lesson:  Stories have a beginning, middle, and end

 Lesson:  Great stories have details

 Lesson:  Stories have problems

 Lesson:  Stories have an order that makes sense

 Lesson:  Creative Writing
