I do Paint Chip Poetry, but I have kids use the names of the colors to integrate into their poems. This looks like fun -- I'll have to try it! Have kids draw them from a hat. They could practice descriptive writing using the color they draw.
A great visual rubric. It is so important for students to see models! Using a rubric scale to compare weak and strong writing models is a great way for students to begin to reflect on their own writing!
