One of my favorite places to integrate writing is Social Studies (I love Social Studies...I majored in it in college! :)
I love having the kids write journal entries and letters from the time period we are learning about and from different perspectives. Plus, the kids can be very creative when writing!
Another favorite of mine, is one I use when teaching explorers.
When I was in 5th grade and learning about explorers, our teacher divided us into groups and had us sail around the world, featuring all manner of sea monsters and horrible weather.
It was such a memorable experience that I decided to do the same with my kids!
My kids last year loved it! Every day, they had to write a log entry.
The better the log entry-the more spaces they get to move!
The kids came up with such creative entries, I thoroughly enjoyed reading them! Plus, it teaches them to work together in a group, and incorporate other ideas into their writing that they might not have normally thought of.
