Fun back to school activity!
This mini unit is great for getting to know your students and building your classroom community! It only takes about five days but allows many opportunities for students to draw, write, and share all about themselves.
I teach this unit at the very beginning of the year. My students love going on a photo scavenger hunt to learn all about me. They work together to try and figure out all of the answers to each question about their new teacher.
This provides the motivation for them to create their own pictures to begin planning their all about me writing. There is even a fun sharing game included in the plans for students to get up and out of their seats while getting to know each other through their writing.
By the end of this mini unit, your students will have gone through the entire writing process and learned a lot about each other. It is a great activity even if it is not the beginning of the year! Definitely one of my favorites.
If you are in need of a grade from this unit, feel free to use the grading rubric. Have fun!
