In this Back To School activity, students write responses to questions from a series of 7 templates to create a poster about themselves. The template structure varies: some templates include sentence starters, while others allow students to write in paragraph form.
Students decorate their work with their own illustrations rather than coloring graphics or cartoons. Makes a great display for the fall Meet The Teacher Night.
An optional art extension to incorporate into the project is included.
This project offers teachers a mini-diagnostic assessment of writing skills (spelling, capitalization, use of punctuation, vocabulary and grammar) as well as an assessment of oral communication.
Additional, alternative templates are included to reflect American spelling at the end of the document.
The length of the project ranges from approximately 4 to 5 hours but may vary depending on your students. Suitable for Grades 2-5.
