Weighing in a little late in the day for our new linky--Traits Tuesday... This week's topic is ANYTHING GOES!
I have chosen to share a wonderful idea that I found on Make, Take & Teach from back in 2012--focus sticks.
The picture comes directly from Julie's post on Make, Take & Teach.
I found this idea some time ago and will be making some of these goodies soon. Before I do, I am going to have my students brainstorm some picture icons to represent each of the traits we focus on for much of the first half of the year--ideas, organization, and conventions. I will then create a cup of focus sticks that will be housed in the writing center for students to use as they are writing and editing. Love this idea! I think having this visual/kinesthetic item will help guide and motivate students. I will post a picture of our finished focus sticks after doing some further work with my students... :0) Fly on over to Make, Take & Teach to learn more!
Join us in the learning fun and link up your ANYTHING GOES traits ideas for this week's Traits Tuesday!
