Stains Tell the Story

I love this lesson!  I've used it in my class a few times, and I'm so happy I finally got my act together to put it in a presentable format.  Seriously!  Look at how I've used it for the last two years:

That's right, I used this random scrap of paper and a few pictures saved on my computer for two whole years.

Now, that might work for me, but I couldn't pass it on that way!  It's been put into a pdf file complete with detailed lesson plan (no scribbles for you!) and pictures with titles and attractive borders.  

This package includes:
- the lesson plan
- character examples (from movies and books students know)
- a group activity
- individual task with student planning sheet

With this lesson, you'll guide your students through the process of planning a character BEFORE they write.  They will think critically about the details of their main character's outfit: what are they wearing, why are they wearing it and what does it look like.  The primary focus is on the character's t-shirt.

Kids love to invent reasons for stains, rips and tears.  They are so creative and the results are always great.


Helping to inspire,
