Perfect Possessives

My class got practice with perfecting possessives today with a partner writing activity.
Inspiration for this activity that I extended for my 3rd graders came from  Mrs. Bumgardner's 1st grade class. They wrote about their most prized possessions {HERE}.
Take a look at our twist on it.
Each student brought in a prized possession to share.  I took a picture of each student and then they partnered up and wrote about another classmate's object. So fun and eye opening. One of my students brought in a very touching item, a Beads of Courage necklace.







Want this perfect lesson for possessives? You can get a copy {HERE}.
You might want to do this writing activity after the holidays with each students' favorite holiday gift.
My class loved it so much, that I might just do it again too after vacation!

  5. Hi Denise:

    This is why Linky Parties are so great! I missed this post the first time around and the "Beads of Courage" necklace sharing is so touching! (Don't you just love when you can SEE into kids' hearts!)

    Thanks for posting this the first time--and reminding me to go back and look at it again in your "Top Three" post.

    Wishing you happiness in the New Year ahead!
