Sentence Scramble – Cut these sentences into individual words and put each set in a baggie or envelope for students to unscramble and write on dry erase boards or blank paper.
Illustrate the Sentence – Have students choose one sentence to write at the bottom of a paper and then illustrate to show they understand the meaning.
Writing Prompts – Choose some of these to use as writing prompts during a unit surrounding nature. Students can read them and make text-to-self connections as they write about what it means (or has meant) in their worlds.
