We read the book Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert this week and after finishing the book, we let the students create their own leaf creations. They could make whatever they wanted (they mostly wanted to make dragons) and use whatever materials they wanted.
After finishing their creations, we had them write a story about their character. For the new JK writers we had a simple sheet that they could fill in, and for the more experienced SK writers, we gave them writing sheets for them to write a story on.
I’m offering this pack for free!
