Word Box Writing
Word Box Writing . . .
The way this works, there are six words in a box, that are kind of related -- for example, "cactus, desert, sand, water, lizard, prickly." Below the word box are some lines for writing, to write 4 sentences using all six words.
This takes some thinking! You can't just write one sentence with each word; some of the sentences will have to have more than one. . .
So what is the purpose of all this?
Well, number one is to have some fun doing writing.
Then also, there is the thinking part . . . and kids might like to use the words in the box as story starters, sometimes.
