Super Hero Writing!

Super Hero Writing at Educents!


Who doesn’t love a Super Hero!!  Show your students how they can become awesome Super Hero writers with this unit from Zanah.  What I loved about this unit is that I could use the strategies with any writing piece!
These lessons show the students different types of attention getting Beginnings, Middle and Endings to make their writing more exciting.
  I love the half sheet that my students could put right into their Writer’s Notebook.

After I gave examples of Beginnings, my students then worked in groups to come up with some of their own.  This allowed the students to understand the concepts further before I had them work on them independently. 

We used the graphic organizer to tie our beginning and ending together.

They LOVED this activity! If you want to check it out for your students, jump over to Educents where you can get this unit and 19 more for a real deal!  Only $30 for all 20 products.

Thanksgiving Craft

We had so much fun creating our Thanksgiving craft to hang from our ceiling!  Students were giggling while trying to trace their footprints for the body.    It only took them a minute to figure out to trace each others foot instead of their own!!

We also wrote on the feathers things that they are thankful for!  Loved this activity!!  Grab it for your classroom for free! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
