Create a Writing Mascot for Your Classroom
1. Engage your students and keep them on top of writing tasks with a writing mascot.
2. Display a character, such as a goofy pencil, on or near the board.
3. Each day, draw a speech bubble on the board as if it comes from the mascot.
4. Inside the speech bubble, write the day’s writing task, a useful writing tip, or a writing prompt.
For added fun, invite students to brainstorm names for the mascot and vote on the winner.
What mascot will your students choose?
