Fasten your seat belts! We have a game changer for your Writing Workshop classroom!
We all know that at the beginning of every school year our students come to us with gaps in what they should know in regard to writing. For example, they forget the steps of the writing process. They are terrible at conventions (periods, capital letters…). They do not know what figurative language is, much less the difference between a simile and a metaphor. And getting them to write a structured paragraph, much less identify a topic sentence are out of the question.
Well, after a combined teaching record of over 50 years, we finally realized that students need these basic skills and concepts front loaded to make it a successful school year in writing.
So, we have developed a Writing Workshop Escape Room that is sure to be a hit with your students. Your students will try to become Writing Wizards through 6 different challenging missions.
In order to be admitted to the Writing School of Wizardry there are some requirements.
Students will have to:
- figure out the order of the steps of the writing process
- use flip cards to identify nouns, adjectives, and adverbs
- be able to identify the different types of figurative language
- find errors in punctuation
- identify topic sentences
- determine the structure of sentences in a paragraph
Below are some examples of the missions students will need to complete.
This School of Writing Wizardy resource will have your students begging for more! No longer does the teaching of basic skills and concepts for writing have to be boring!
