-Choose a few templates for students to work on during the 1st day of school. When completed, do some whole class, small group, or partner get-to-know-activities.

-Bind (or staple) these pages into a booklet. Students can keep them in their desk and work on them during writing time.

-Fast finishers – Students can use these pages for the months of Aug and Sept. It’s a fun and engaging activity for your fast finishers and higher achieving students.

-Hang their pages in the hall or on a bulletin board! Your students will love seeing their work displayed in the classroom!

-Save the completed pages and have students re-do them at the end of the year. They will make a great "time capsule" and it will be fun to see how much your students have changed throughout the year.

(There are no right or wrong ways to complete these pages, so have fun and be creative!)

Thanks so much,
