Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Style on the Isle - Section 1: Warm Up


This warm up activity is one I use throughout the year.  The kids have fun choosing different styles, and the "word choice" practice is a wonderful way to keep the importance of vocabulary out in front.  I've even done themes where the kids have to focus their "styles" on a few specific characters from a movie or tv show, an event in history, or from the point of view of an object (chair, shoes, food.)  Creativity and vocabulary...a good combination!
