We are learning about Sticky Dot details. This mini lesson uses a manipulative-sticky dots-as an incentive to add details to a topic. Students have been encourage to think about two details. When a student has a detail they get a sticky dot on the back of their hand. The dots are then used to remind them to write the details down on paper. After each detail the student will place a sticky dot. Not only does it serve as a reminder of the detail needed when writing, but it aides in the planning before writing.
