After reading Dr. Seuss's If I Ran The Circus, have students transition to either of these interesting writing prompts. One is a class book. Choose which writing prompt you want your students to do. They complete their page and illustrate it. Collect and collate the pages.
Read your class book aloud by having each student share the page that they wrote.The other writing prompt is a "craftivity." Students color and cut out their tent and attach their "If I ran the circus..." paper to the edges, bending it so that their tent is now a 3D cylinder. (Don't forget to review that shape.) For that finishing touch, students glue their photo to the face of either a clown or a ringmaster.
Punch holes on either side, add a yarn loop and suspend from the ceiling.
After which time, it will be up-dated and put in my tpT shop.
