Tuesday Writing PaWs: Making Writing A-peeling!

Routine can sometimes become tedious, to use my kiddos' word... BORING! And the last thing teachers want is for writing to become boring. PaW (Paragraph a Week) is a routine writing program; that's its special purpose, writing each week, regularly! One way we tried to overcome the "boring" factor was to include fun, timely, kid-friendly topics that celebrated unusual birthdays, events, or holidays.

This week's FREEBIE PaW requires students to write a descriptive paragraph honoring the life of John Chapman by writing about APPLES! Click HERE to download your copy of the PaW sheet.

Looking for some fun ELA activities to round out your celebration of John Chapman?


This is a bundle of three fun and engaging ELA activities (each is sold separately in my TpT Store, but by purchasing this bundle rather than the individual files you are receiving a considerable savings). The items span a range of interests while being centered on a theme. Perfect for any Johnny Appleseed celebration, the activities can be used as part of a literacy center (QR Codes are provided for self-checking), for homework, or whole class involvement.

The bundle contains the following items:

Johnny Appleseed SCOOT... 20 task cards to practice revising sentences for punctuation, capitalization, and spelling

Johnny Appleseed ZAP!... a fast paced game to practice fact vs. opinion statements

Johnny Appleseed Mystery Picture... a printable worksheet for identifying parts of speech (nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, pronouns, conjunctions)
