Ba Da Bing, hook, central idea, supporting details ... Do you know how and why authors use these terms? If you’re a fourth-grade student at Floresville South Elementary, you do! Students have spent the year learning the skills writers use to create both interesting and creative narratives, as well as expository essays.

To wrap up our units on writing, we participated in a “Survivor”-themed writing camp, where students were put through drills and challenges to prove they have what it takes to be an amazing writer.

Every class was given a tribe name, theme song, and tiki torch to carry as they moved from one challenge to another. Students were encouraged to dress the part as they worked through obstacle courses, solving editing and revising problems, wrote detailed paragraphs about eating earthworms (with pretend gummy worms and Oreo dirt, of course), used Activote buzzers to answer spelling quizzes, and worked through group challenges to put puzzles together, proving they have the brawn and brains to write like a pro. Students also had individual challenges where they earned points for their teams that were combined with their group points for an overall score. All the fourth-grade team, with help from our RTI teachers and art teacher Steve Walton, served as leaders for the two-day event.

Our students worked hard, and we couldn’t be more proud of each one of them. Stacy Moy’s homeroom came out as the tribe on top at the end of the challenge, and every student was a winner for working hard and surviving the ultimate writing camp. We know FSE is full of future authors.
