All About Me is the perfect back to school theme! Many students are nervous about their new class and teacher, and are unsure of what the year holds. However, they can find confidence by writing about something they know well, themselves!
This mini unit is a great way to ease your students back into writing as you learn more about them. Even better, when it is bound together as a book, it serves as a wonderful keepsake that parents will cherish for years to come.
This contents of this project are meant to ease students back into writing, a skill that tends to get the rusty over the summer months:
*By using different graphic organizers, students are given the opportunity to brainstorm with ease.
*Then, they take their writing to the next level by completing fill in the blank prompts. These prompts provide scaffolding and help build confidence.
*Finally, after modeling the kind of writing you expect to see in your class, students try their hand at writing multiple sentences about themselves.
