Philip Crammond has an amazing website full of activities, games, and resources for the Smart Board. During the next few weeks I'll highlight a few of my favorites, but be sure to go and check out his website when you get the chance.
One of my favorites in his Language section under the Writing section is the Characters activity. The Characters activity allows students to create their own character and then talk and/or write about the person they have invented. There are tons of different choices for hair color and style, body color and style, expression, and face color and style. Such a fun way to talk and write about characters in a story!
