Writing Pin 2: Scene of the Crime Writing: Set up a fake crime scene. Then have all the children to gather around and examine the scene of the crime. After they have all looked at the crime scene have them return to their desk and tell them to write a story about what they thought happened. This will make some interesting stories, but I would use this in only 4th or 5th grade.

Great idea for fairy tales!  Using white butcher paper, the teacher wrote "Once up a time" at the beginning of the sheet, and "The end" at the end.  Kids drew and wrote a story in between:)

Love this idea from Delights and Designs… You could easily extend this for more able pupils to contain more word types.    Children are encouraged to come up and pick a word from the teacher. They then place the stick in the correct pot. To further extend, they could then pick a word from each cup and create a sentence. Perfect for assessment!

Using a "BFG + Dream Jars" (write titles of favorite books on the jars) is a creative idea for designing a reading corner in your classroom. This would be a perfect idea for a fourth grade classroom.
