If you are looking for a great way to get your students EXCITED to write and incorporate art...and perhaps a little laughter into your classroom, my exchange projects are 100% the answer! You will be JUST AS EXCITED as your students are when they reveal their work to one another!
PLEASE SEE THE PREVIEW FOR A CLOSER LOOK! Here's how it works:
⭐️ The students are asked to create a turkey by designing it on a template I provide for you. They are then asked to describe it by writing a very detailed descriptive paragraph...or two...or three. You, or they, can decide!
⭐️ The student, when finished, gives their descriptive paragraph to a partner of either their choice or yours to see if they can recreate the same exact turkey based solely on what they have written!
⭐️ Their partner can NOT see their turkey until they have drawn it as it is described. Then, the fun part happens...the truth is revealed as the original design is shared with their partner! Then it's time to switch! Their partner now shares their descriptive writing, and the other kiddo has to try to recreate it. SO MUCH FUN!!!
⭐️ At this point, you can display their work in the hallway.
INCLUDED IN THIS PRODUCT, YOU WILL RECEIVE:
Detailed letters for both the teacher and student as to how the process works
Example pages with my very own descriptive writing and turkey creation, along with the drawing that my partner did...that was so much fun for the both of us!
3 writing page templates...each one varies in line spacing, and one is even provided for primary kiddos, if needed.
A ready-to-design turkey template
Half and full page options of page templates for students to draw on (if you choose to NOT use the turkey template)
Themed word lists to help students choose theme-appropriate vocabulary
A version of the example pages that can easily be displayed on a Smart Board or computer for closer examination during whole group instruction
Bulletin board letters that say "Turkey Exchange," along with turkey accents to complete your look and grab the attention of everyone that walks by! Both colored and black and white letters have been provided.
Come hang out with me on...
