Whew! What a busy week---That seems to be the theme of all of my posts lately, busy, busy, busy! I guess it’s just that time of year. The first week of school is now officially over. It was a great week but I am soo happy the weekend is here! :)
On Monday I linked up with Blog Hoppin for Teacher Week. Well….one things lead to another and somehow I missed Tuesday, Wednesday AND Thursday….but it’s Freebie Friday now and I am BACK!
Click HERE to get your copy of my Superhero Comic Activity.
I am super excited to share this fun freebie with you! I originally created the Superhero Comics lesson when I was in college. I was working with second grade students in an after school setting. We read Captain Underpants by Dav Pilkey during homework club.
While I was working with my sweet little second graders I stumbled upon this website . It has copies of the actual comics that Dav Pilkey drew as a child. How cool is that?!?!?
As a culminating project the students created their own comic book character. I wish I had pictures of their cute little superheroes!
Fast-forward three years, I’m teaching 5th grade and need to teach onomatopoeia. What better way to incorporate onomatopoeia than with a comic book lesson?!?!
Just today I pulled this lesson as a Fun Friday activity. I have quite an artistic bunch and they loved this activity! They worked hard to plan there characters. Some created very detailed story lines. They came up with some fun characters like Mohawk Man and Super Star! One especially creative student came up with Tomato Man who fought his number on nemesis Potato Man.
Check out their creative work below.
Superhero Stats Sheet (Jotting down all of those great ideas!)
Creating their comic strips using their newly created superhero.
I wish i would have captured more of the comics! They really came out nicely and was a fun way to end the first week of school in a creative way!
I hope that you can get use out of the freebie in your own classroom! Again, click HERE if you wanna grab it. Please leave me a comment either here or at my TPT store if you decide to download. I love to hear from you!
I know a lot of you will be returning to school next week, so here are a couple of fun back to school freebies:
Well I am off to relax after a long week! I'm going out of town to visit with family. Can't wait for a little R&R. Have a great weekend!
