Last year, we used this great farm comic template I found from Whimsy Workshop Teacher to work on idioms. I loved the idea of having this word bubbles to practice our new idioms we had been working on. We made our comics using the idioms we had worked on. This worked really well since idioms are funny. My kids had a blast and it was a great way to work on a challenging concept in a fun way. I came across this template again this year and decided to use it in a different way with a different group. Gotta love the multi-use resources! Our classrooms are ever-changing!
Here are last year’s idiom comics:
This year, I used this template with my mid level group to work on wh- questions. This is something they really struggle with. Especially, when we work on wh- question discrimination. Switching between those questions can be hard. Having examples and the word bubbles helped us work on these conversation skills in a concrete way. It went really well!
First, we put the page in dry erase pocket to practice questions and answers.
I gave a question and the students had to respond by writing an appropriate answer.
Then we made our own versions. They turned out really cute and I saw some definite improvement in skills throughout this lesson!
