    Persuasive writing techniques and debating are perfect ways to incorporate the outside world into your classroom. Have the children pick a local topic and write an opinion back to the editor and see if they can get their writing into the paper. The kids will never forget the writing if they are able to get their response into the paper.

    I have also had children become journalist and submit articles about school happenings to the local newspaper. Again, if selected there really isn't a bigger reward.

    Spelling searches. If you use a spelling list use a highlighter to find spelling words.

    Teaching syllables… Find the word with the most syllables.

    Parts of speech....nominate words for best adjective, adverb, ect...

    Similes....nominate best use of a simile or metaphor.
