I thought I should publish this post tonight since tomorrow will be a busy day. We are going to the Pumpkin Patch whether it rains, snows, or the sun shines. The same goes for Trick -or-Treating we are magnetically attracted to candy:)
We had a fun storytelling session using a game from yours truly Write Shop. What I love about this writing curriculum is it allows for so much creativity to take place while encouraging great writing skills. The unit that we are doing is getting the kids to write about adventures. When I was making all the copies for this unit, my young assistant Ken was sitting beside me and asked if she could join in with us. I obliged, so in regards to Write Shop for this month I am talking about both Ken and DJ doing Write Shop Junior D.
To play Where in the World you need a globe with different habitats. A pile of cards with problems and characters. The kids didn't have any difficulties coming up with characters or problems. I purchased the Time Saver Pack which includes the games, so all I had to do was print it out.
Playing this game was a nice prewriting activity gearing them up to write an Adventure story of their own.
