Instead of using money symbols, I have used the word trees. For example, if students answer all 15 questions correctly, they have planted 1 million trees on Earth Day. This concept of winning trees instead of money for this game is introduced in this slide in the lesson.
The student response worksheet, where students write their answers, also contains the word trees instead of money symbols.
This response worksheet is found on slide 38 of the presentation. To print this worksheet out for your students, open this document and when you go to print it, select only slide 38 to print, and by doing this, you will not print out all 40 slides that are in this set.

Spring Into Colorful Writing Powerpoint Lesson
and Student Bulletin Board Display Set
This Spring Into Colorful Writing powerpoint set is designed to be a daily writing warm up activity to use with your students. There are 25 different sentences with animated graphics for students to read. Students rewrite these sentences using more descriptive word choices.
There is a matching bulletin board display worksheet for you to print out of these 25 sentence slides. During each warm activity, choose a different student to write his/her sentence on the display worksheet.
After you have finished all 25 warm up activity sentences and having one student write his/her new sentence on each of the display worksheets, you will be able to create a vibrant classroom display of your students' Spring Into Colorful Writing sentences.
These spring powerpoint lesson plans contain flowers with animated butterflies as the main background for this presentation. The word color is used on 3 of the introduction slides and on the three student worksheets. If you spell this word colour, then it would take you less than a minute to edit this word on these 6 slides.
After the title slide (shown above), there are two example slides to show students how to write a more descriptive sentence than the one that is written on each slide. These two example slides are shown below.
There are three student worksheets for students to write their descriptive sentences on in this set of spring powerpoint lesson plans. You do not need to use these worksheets, instead you could have students complete each warm up activity on a scrap piece of paper.
These three worksheets are found on slides 31 - 33 of the presentation. To print these worksheets out for your students, open this document and when you go to print it, select only slides 31 - 33 to print, and by doing this, you will not print out all 34 slides that are in this powerpoint presentation.
Below is an example of the first student worksheet.
This is designed to be a language arts daily warm activity and there are 25 different sentence prompts to use with your students. Depending on how many prompts you use each day, this activity could last you anywhere from two weeks to a full month.
Step 1: Begin by showing your students the animated writing prompt.
Step 2: Students write their sentences on the worksheets provided or on a piece of scrap paper.
Step 3: Students share their sentences with the class.
In this step, I continue to use my computer and projector. As a student reads his/her sentence example aloud to the class, I type it on a blank powerpoint template in large print so that the whole class can read this sentence displayed on the projector.
I use this time for spontaneous mini-reviews of grammar, parts of speech, and punctuation depending on the examples that my students have come up with. Students love going to the board where their sentence is being projected and pointing out their nouns, verbs, etc.
These three steps take approximately 5 minutes and make a wonderful warm up activity for language arts.
Step 4: I select one student to write his/her sentence on the worksheet that will be displayed on the bulletin board. Since there are 25 sentences, each student should have an opportunity to complete at least one of these display worksheets. Below is an example of what these display worksheets look like.
Step 5: When my students have completed all 25 warm up activities and each student has had a chance to write at least one of his/her sentences on our display set, I make a classroom bulletin board display of our 25 descriptive sentences.
This set includes a 5 page bulletin board display banner to help save you time in preparing this display. There are two banners in this set using the spelling colorful and colourful.
Below is an example of what this 5 page bulletin board banner looks like. The graphics that are in the banner match the graphics that are contained in the various 25 sentence writing powerpoint prompts.
This powerpoint presentation contains 25 sentence prompts that are written very bland for students to expand upon.
You can individualize each writing prompt to meet your own needs. For one day, you can instruct your students that they need to write a prepositional phrase in their sentence. The next day, instruct your students that they need to write a compound sentence with a coordinating conjunction.
You can guide your students to practice writing more descriptive sentences each day that focus on the grammar topics that you want to reinforce with extra practice in these 25 warm up activities.
This Spring Into Colorful Writing teaching resource set contains 25 student writing display slides for you to print out and have your students write their new sentences on it. Each student should have an opportunity to write one of their sentences on these display worksheets.
When you have finished with this warm up review unit, you will be able to make a dynamic and colorful spring classroom bulletin board display with your students' 25 descriptive sentences. You can use the 5 page bulletin board banner that is included in this set to help you design your bulletin board display.
