Create a Writing Mascot for Your Classroom

Classroom Writing Tips

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?
