Throwback Thursday: Creative Dialogue

I'm back again for a double feature!  I couldn't miss out on Throwback Thursday!  There's no bells and whistles with this post, just a creative idea from a presentation a few years ago!  The post was originally created in April of 2011.

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...
