ü Give students paper plates divided into four sections.
ü Ss will write the names of the seasons in each section and draw their favorite activity in each section.
ü Ss will write a sentence to describe each picture.
ü If time allows, Ss will write a sentence about their favorite season.
(I modified this student friendly Writing Rubric which I got from one of my co-workers.
Having Ss check their writing by using it helps them remember what mistakes they have made.)
