Looking for ways to get your kids writing? Get your students using their imagination as they write about an interview with a ladybug. Students imagine they meet a ladybug that can talk. They think of questions that they would like to ask the ladybug.
If you're following the Writing Teacher's Roadmap Get Started Guide, today's activity focuses on Step One: Get Kids Writing. The goal of step one is simply to get kids to write.
This activity focuses on students coming up with questions they would ask a ladybug if they met one that could talk.
** This activity could easily be done at home. All students would need is a piece of paper and a pencil.
I would love to hear how this activity went in your class and see some of the ladybug interview questions your students came up with. Tag me on Instagram @teachingwithatouchofhoney or share on the Facebook page.
If you want to extend this writing activity, get your kids to write about their first encounter with the talking ladybug. Ask them to write a story about the day they met a talking ladybug. Students can work through the writing process - writing a draft story, revising and editing, and writing a final copy.
