Based off of Thinking Maps and Write From the Beginning, this is a set of graphic organizers used to spark writing in young students. This
Word work or grammar activity using water bottle tops (that aren't recyclable). I store them in the large powdered drink mix containers with lid. Once students have matched antonyms they write them in their reading journal using a bridge map (love thinking maps!).
Why write? Good chart to use in the beginning of the year & to revisit at the beginning of each writer's workshop.
