It's time for Workshop Wednesday with my BBB Jivey!
This week's topic is how we get students to write...if you think about our students and what we'd like to see in their writing, we have a really big job! We need to motivate them to plan, to START their paper, to include vocabulary and creativity skills, to remember punctuation and capitalization, to edit, to revise, the list goes on!
Here's when I introduce my GEMS! They'll do anything for one of these jewels! I can't get around the room fast enough when I'm passing these out! They call me left and right!
Here are some samples for a variety of leveled students:
I use gems for grabbers and creativity skills.
Jewels are awarded for using synonyms.
And vocabulary words...
Strong verbs and descriptive writing gets a sparkle too!
Do you see that sentence??!!
Mmmm...there goes the wafting
smell fragrance of delectable cupcakes and apple pie that can belittle the marvelous scent of any fancy perfume.
What??!! That writing blows my mind!
So proud of all these students!
**Sometimes I give gems for anything I like in a paper and other times it's for a specific skill/target I've taught and want to see in their writing.
Get some self adhesive gemstones and see the magic happen right before your eyes!
