Product Description
Welcome students back to school with these writing printables and assess writing skills, social interests, and drawing ability during the first week of school.

These draw and write quick-write activities ask students to draw first before writing. This allows them to create visual details before putting their thoughts into words. Use these for literacy centers, independent work, or as prompts for whole class discussions.

Ten draw & write subject prompts are included:
• what they learned last year
• something they did during summer
• feelings about the new school year
• classroom observation
• what they want the teacher to know
• importance of class rules
• how to make new friends
• their favorite school subject
• what they hope to learn
• their favorite recess activity

The writing prompts are open-ended enough to allow for students to be as creative as they like with their writing. Writing space is unlined to allow for all sizes of handwriting and a variety of grade levels.

For best results, have students do all drawings in color, and encourage them to use details and include as much background as possible.

I am a retired elementary classroom teacher, a former art teacher, an artist and a writer. I have a Multiple Subjects credential, a Single Subject credential for Art and English, LDS/ESL certification, a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education with a Mathematics focus, and Montessori certification. I have worked with all elementary grades, and with special groups including ELL, GATE, and At-Risk students. Creating Art With Kids and Share2Learn lessons and resources are designed to foster student creativity, choice, and independence, and to encourage authentic art-making. Consideration is given to developmental appropriateness, differentiation possibilities, and teacher individuality. For this reason, directions are general, expectations are open-ended, and clip art on student pages is kept to a minimum.
