If you're looking for a way to spice up your editing this upcoming week, here's just the thing for you...editing jingles to go along with witch fingers and eyeball rings (both found at Party City).
Here's just a peek at some of the things inside this little freebie:
EYEBALL RING - EDITING
(to the tune of the SpongeBob theme song, teacher leads, students reply with italic parts)
Are you ready editors? “Eye, Eye Captain!”
Oh, who’s looking for errors in their writing piece? Super Eye-Guy!
Who’s correcting for punctuation and grammar, at least? Super Eye-Guy!
Who can use what they’ve learned to make mistakes right? Super Eye-Guy!
Who can add details and “wow” words to give it some bite?
Super Eye-Guy!...Super Eye-Guy!...Super…Eye…Guy!!!!!
Here's one to use with those icky green witch fingers:
WITCH FINGER - Word choice
Witch finger, witch finger with a nail that’s red
Point to a word I could use instead.
Lead me to this word, tap it twice
Let my brain think and then add some spice!
A dash more description, a sprinkle of “WOW”,
Help me change it in ways I didn’t know how!
There are jingles for editing punctuation, grammar, word choice, and organization. There's also ones for general editing and for tracking while reading. To top it all off, there are 2 conference forms to use with your students.
