Clip to ScrapBook #1

Almost all of my kids have writing goals and just...ugh.

In the past I've done things where my students have produced writing other than traditional essays such as pamphlets, but I'm drawing a blank. So, if anyone has any wonderful and creative ways for kids to produce writing please, please, please, send them my way. So far, I have:
1) pamphlets
2) blogs
3) Book Creator

I know you brilliant people have tons of other ideas.

TIA!

Advertisements... several variations are possible. A script for a TV or Radio Commercial... a testimonial. (This could dovetail into some of the ideas you've listed.)

A letter/resume/proposal explaining why the student should be hired for a certain position. I saw a version of this done using Santa's Workshop. The kids got to figure out what job they'd want and came up with some great stuff. "Reindeer Wrangler" had great alliteration possibilities!

Comics
Book or movie reviews
How To .... write specific step by step directions for something: carve a pumpkin, make a sandwich (or some other food), play a game, assemble something, directions to school from home....

It will depend on their goals. I suspect they are usually in the area of organization/sequencing.

And never forget poetry...it’s short, and there are a ton of styles they can try: haiku, cinquain, “You Are”, color poems.

PM me if you want more info. I had great success with struggling students and poetry.

Interview

My third graders interviewed a parent or grandparent about their third grade experience. I am attaching the interview form used by my class. Feel free to make any changes or shorten the form.

I felt the form was very important so students had some logical and informational questions to ask. This writing could also be a compare/contrast writing with students choosing one idea like parent's/grandparent's lunch program and comparing it to their own lunch program.

Note: Sorry I didn't attach this last night. Just got a new computer and was having trouble with my Microsoft programs.
