On a piece of paper I have a chart that contains a number of simple sentence starters. Students use these and the blank pages included to create a few sentences on their desk. This allows for the students who struggle with putting pen to paper an easier way to get their ideas down.
I gave students a chart full of different sentence starters and connecting words that they are familiar with. Then I encouraged them to 'write' three interesting sentences. Once they were happy they read them to a friend and took a photo with the camera app. Once the photo was taken they emailed it to their Evernote account.
