Creative Dialogue

Teaching dialogue has never been so much fun!  After having Melissa Forney present at school, teachers came away with exciting ideas for enhancing writing.  I am going nuts over dialogue with a creative twist. After the meeting, our first grade team put their heads together, asked parents to donate old magazines, and began a grade level dialogue writing contest. The kiddos browsed old images, looking for pictures with a twist.  The less sense the picture made, the more creative their dialogue became.  The focus for this lesson was quotation marks.  Brace yourself people and prepare to giggle...

I love this! So, was this just the RTI group or did the whole class make one? -Andi

This activity was done with the high performing 1st grade RTI group. The activity has received so many chuckles. Many kids outside the group were eager to create their own. Now most 1st and 2nd graders have created their own dialogue poster!
