Inking Thoughts: Adlibs

  • Putting Your Thoughts on Paper: Turkey Dinner Adlib
  • Gathering materials: family learning journals, pencils, colored pencils, crayons
  • Reading and Writing Connection: Thanksgiving Dinner (Nouns; Adjectives; Verbs)
  • Remind them to open their journals to the next available page and date it. Don’t forget to have them label the top of the page with today’s learning topic/skill.
  • Drafting responses: Today’s Adlib can be a family writing experience. Let each member choose one of the missing nouns-verbs-adjectives. Invite someone to be the scribe for your family Turkey Dinner story.
  • Finally: Written extension: Invite each family member to draft their own Turkey Dinner adlib. Encourage the youngest members to draw their thoughts and assign someone to be their scribe who will help them draft two sentences about their “Turkey Dinner.” Allow each family member to write their thoughts (10 min). Discuss: Let each family member share their “  “ creation. Remind them that respectful listeners make eye contact with the person sharing without interrupting.
  • Those that get done early… ask them to illustrate a scene from their book.
