FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “ELA Maker Project: Collaborative Maker Stories”

by Spark Creativity
9th - 12th Grade

Ready to join the maker movement and incorporate some design thinking into your classroom at the same time?
I was inspired by the amazing book Make Writing, by Angela Stockman, to create this ELA maker space project. First, students create something using art or maker materials. Then, they write about it.
Students who struggle with writer's block will find their ideas flowing better. Students who love art will connect more to their writing. Students will have a chance to really visualize aspects of their writing before they begin.
From the Reviews:
  • " So fabulous, great for a class that just wouldn't engage!"
  • "I love art and the idea of combining it with ELA has always interested me. I am looking forward to working with my art department on this project. At this time, I plan to have their art pieces displayed in the halls and invite parents for a gallery walk to view the art and read the stories. "
  • "I am so excited to use this! This is just the creative angle I have been looking for when it comes to writing stories with my students. Thank you so much for sharing!"
For this innovative creative writing unit, students will collaborate as a class to create the characters and settings of a fictional world they will then write about.
All students will make a character or setting out of whatever materials they choose, then present their maker pieces back to the class and display them.
Students will choose several characters and a setting or two and then write their stories, participating in a structured peer editing workshop before completing the final draft.
Finally, students will present their work to the world in whatever way they have chosen as a class, incorporating a final launch into the process that will give them an authentic audience and a more meaningful reason than a grade to take their work seriously.

ELA/Writing; Grades 7-10

This three-passage text set is accompanied by an argumentative prompt regarding the topic of the use of social media in hiring and firing practices in the workplace. It's a perfect assignment to engage students, especially as students start to become more aware of the significance of the role of social media in the world around us. While many students might have personal opinions, this assignment will strengthen your students experience with the idea of using the text to support their writing, rather than their own personal experiences, since that is what is required. Modeled after AIR Testing, which is used in numerous states across the country, it would also fit well into a PARCC simulation. The text set, itself, is 5-1/2 pages long.

2-Digit Addition Penguin Theme - $3.50
By Mistakes Allow Thinking to Happen
Math; Grades 1-2

This product helps students practice adding numbers up to a sum of one hundred using 2-digit numbers. You'll receive 24 Task Cards and 24 Matching Answer Cards, and your students will gain terrific practice and opportunities to grow in their addition capabilities.
