Sentence Starter Class Book

My 3rd grade co-teaching writing class has been spending some time on academic vocabulary (more on that later), and recently our focus word was “CREATE”.

To follow-up our learning of the word “create” I created a creative create activity. 🙂 A sentence starter class book.

After an explanation and an example (mine are the cover and the first picture), the students were given:

  • A circle (all the same shape–I used my circle cutter and some fun paper)
  • A blank piece of paper
  • The sentence frame:
    • ________________________, because ___________________________. After awhile I didn’t want to be a ______________________ anymore, because _______________ so I became a…

The students needed to think through a circular object for the circle to become. Examples of what they thought of include: a watch face, the moon, the sun, a basketball, a wheel, etc. It was amazing to see what they thought of, and to read their reasons.

To finish our book I created the following page:

What object would you turn the circle into?

Have fun creating! 🙂
