Who is a champion to your class? Elementary and middle schoolers think of a role-model from their lives. Then, in their journals, they write evidence of that person's perseverance. They identify the character trait of perseverance with the autobiographical character, Michelle Kwan. Additionally, they write a personal narrative essay that describes the steps they took to achieve a personal goal.
A Six-Trait Writing lesson plan helps your middle schoolers liven up their word choice and shows them how to evaluate their own writing. Class members take a close look at the language used in poems by Shakespeare, Kipling, Longfellow, and others, and then draft their own piece of writing. Suggested poem list, discussion questions for each poem, a writing rubric, and paragraph examples are included in this six-day, richly detailed plan.
Ah, food idioms! Now that sounds tasty. Class members read and discuss various food-related idioms, create an illustration of a food-related idiom, and develop a class book or bulletin board to celebrate figurative language and National Nutrition Month. A list of 27 food-related idioms is included.
Students engage in a lesson with the making of a bulletin board for the holiday of Thanksgiving. They brainstorm for ideas as a group and use them to create designs for the bulletin board. An extension to the lesson is the integration of technology to create drawings for the bulletin board.
