PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Do you need a Back To School Project that lets you share with the students, helps you to get to know the students, fills a lot of time (if done in class) so you can address all those admin needs, and best of all makes an AWESOME "Back to School" bulletin board that your students and administration will be proud of??! This project has been my go to for several years.

I wrote and planned this project for 8th grade students, but it would be just as effective with younger or older students. I usually omit all the templates with my older students, and use them exclusively with younger kids. I do share the templates in the presentation PowerPoint so the students get a feel for what I'm asking. Your time constraints will determine whether you use the 12 templates.

With this file you receive:

** PowerPoint presentation with 17 slides to introduce the project, show examples, and encourage sharing.

** A tri-fold brochure to be given to the students as a handout for project guidelines and ideas.

** 12 templates for three of the required activities and several of the most popular ideas suggested in the "Choose Your Own" activity.

** Photos of completed displays and bulletin board

** Simple rubric

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The directions for the students include 5 activities to complete.

1. A postcard to illustrate and describe an experience over summer break.

2. Create a "Sport" Trading card to highlight one of your many talents.

3. Create a table to analyze whether your favorite characters would be good students.

4. Create a new logo or mascot for your school.

5. Student Choice - I give about 60 ideas for the kids with templates for the most popular, but creativity is encouraged so kids can come up with their own ideas or expand on mine.

ANY ONE OF THESE ACTIVITIES CAN STAND ALONE PERFECTLY!

I also added teaching notes to the PowerPoint and templates.

This project has saved my sanity at the beginning of the year for the last 4 years!
