Lucky 13 and Language Skills Too

Happy Friday the 13th! Are you someone that thinks the number 13 is lucky or unlucky? Did you know that paraskevidekatriaphobia is the fear of Friday the 13th? Well, today let's view 13 as lucky!

13 Good Luck Symbols

-a four-leaf clover (Did you ever find one?)
-a lucky horseshoe
-a rabbit's foot
-a penny (See a penny, pick it up, and all day long, you will have good luck!)
-a wishbone
-a rainbow
-a ladybug
-a "shooting" star
-lucky bamboo
-the number 7
-three keys (Unlock the door to health, wealth, and love.)
-fuzzy dice 

Which of these symbols do you consider to be lucky?

Looking for a fun way to review language skills like similes, multiple-meaning words, dialogue with quotes, exaggeration, comparisons, and imagery with short writing tasks. A little prep work in creating the cubes is required, but then let the creative juices flow!! Students can complete the tasks in small groups, as independent work at a writing center, or as a whole class activity where students share their ideas!

Thanks for stopping by Pam's Place.
