Why this resource works:

These back to school activities allow students to focus on one part of the writing process at a time. On the first day, the students brainstorm ideas related to the topic then they choose 3 topics to write about. After choosing the three topics, students dig deeper to provide more information about each topic. On day 2, students will use the “dig deeper” ideas to write details and explanations for each detail. Day 3 is where they bring it all together with a topic and closing sentence. Day 4 is the day to revise and edit. On day 5, students will create their final draft and finish up their all about me self portrait to display for others to see.

What teachers like you say about the writing resources…

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Deidre D. says, “I like how this was broken down for the students. It helped make this an easy holiday activity for students to complete independently!”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Karla P. says, “My students are learning about the character trait of gratitude this month. This resource is a great extension of being thankful for many different things in their lives. The resource can also be used digitally, in Google Classroom, so it is a great test prep activity for writing on the computer.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Teaching in Room 5 says, “I bought this product specifically because my 5th graders loved doing the All About Me version earlier in the year. They were so excited when I told them we were going to be doing it! I love how beautiful the slides are but more importantly the guiding questions for the students. I really hope this becomes a growing seasonal bundle. ”
