Personally, I loved teaching ELA to my students. Believe it or not, I enjoyed reading their papers, they were so creative. Some of the ideas that I used in this BUNDLE were actually from my 6th graders. It always amazed me to see the improvements they made from the beginning of the year, they amazed themselves too. I hope these activities are what you need to turn your students on to writing and the writing process…
