I like to give the Frogs a choice when it comes to writing. This week they had the choice between using a template for adjective poetry, or writing their own ghost stories on tissue paper. Lizard Breath chose to write a poem about Black Cats. Her poetry frame looked like this:
Adjective, adjective, adjective, noun
Adjective, noun, TOO.
DON’T FORGET adjective, noun
LAST OF ALL, BEST OF ALL,
I LIKE adjective, noun.
Then we had Ray Bear and Scoot. They wrote Ghost Stories. I took silver tissue paper and cut out ghost shapes. They laid them over a sheet of notebook paper for lines, and wrote their ghost stories with a felt tipped pen (I wrote Scoot’s but she dictated). Then they added ghost faces.
