One way that I encourage writing is to have my students make a "doll". This doll can be made from any materials they choose.
The trick is- the doll has to represent as many of the five senses as possible. I collect the dolls and place them around my room. I have everything from pillow case dolls, pumpkin, cotton ball dolls, dolls made from grass, dried flowers, yarn, everything.
They have to write a short paper on the 5 W's. This gets them in the creative mood to write, they love having their dolls exhibited we always get our picture in the school news for the display of dolls and it combines their "creative" side with the academic side.
It also is a review of adjectives and adverbs. Dorie Thurston Can We Talk? A great lesson to help remind students the skills involved in using dialogue in their writing.
One of the hardest things for my students to understand is the old rule about changing paragraphs when a new speaker talks. After having a few lessons that go over the rules of writing dialogue, I have the students pair together. Each person draws a portrait of their partner from the shoulders up.
This makes for a lot of giggles at the time, but the students do seem to try their best to capture a true likeness of their partners.
Once this is done, the students mount these creations on a large sized piece of construction paper with a sheet of notebook paper that will be used for their dialogue. They write a conversation to go with this project with each person writing their own words.
Each time it's their turn to speak, they must start a new line on the paper indenting as they go. This makes for a cute display for open house or conferences.
