Caroline, I would give students a quick write prompt and have them right paragraphs incorporating a magic three. Students can share their writing orally with classmates. There are also some good videos on YouTube about magic 3 too. Just view. Some of them focus in on just series of verbs...

Hi, how can I make this lesson longer? I need a writing lesson for 4-6th graders that lasts 1 hour. I want to use this lesson but I need it to be longer. Do you have suggestions on how I can make this lesson last longer??
