You DON'T want TEST PREP BOREDOM. So, the next time you need to practice a sixty-minute write after reading a fiction piece, don't reach for the photocopied lackluster story. Make your sixty-minute write sparkle with a classroom set of You DON'T Want a UNICORN! Don't worry, you don't need to buy a classroom set, request them from your library. That's what I just did. I love CWMars! Are you a lucky primary teacher who doesn't have to worry about test prep yet? Then, download the fun activity guide below and host a unicorn party in your classroom. WARNING-Unicorn parties are only recommended on Friday afternoons!
Activity Name: You DON'T Want an ANIMAL OF YOUR CHOICE!
Activity Description: Ask students to read You DON'T Want a UNICORN! Then, have them write their own version of the story by taking out the unicorn and choosing an animal of their choice. Set the timer for sixty-minutes and let their sparkly creativity flow. When they're finished they can use the Sixty-Minute Checklist below to edit their work.
