We were encouraged at an inservice we had a while back to try some new websites in our classroom. This was one of them....
Go to this website...Build Your Wild Self
Students get to create themselves as a wild character. Seriously- go there right now. Check this site out! They can add all sorts of crazy things and they.just.love.it. I had many students try it at home as well! They wanted to make more than one! After you make your character, it gives you a name and tells you about the wild self you created. You can even print them!
Then, after they made their character, I had my kiddos write a story about it! I forgot to take pictures of the finished products, but they are the best! Here is a little freebie that you can use if you'd like. I'm new to using Google Docs- so I hope this works! This is a fun little way to incorporate imagination, technology, and descriptive writing. LOVE!
It is so fun and simple- I hope you can try it in your classroom as well!
