A fun back-to-school activity that allows your students to write a letter to their future selves that you will keep and give back to them at the end of the school year!
Letter guides the students through great get-to-know you questions like "My favorite memory of last year was," and "One thing I hope I have done by the end of this year is..." having student share their finished letters will be a wonderful way to get to know a bit more about them and how they are feeling about the start of a new school year. And just imagine their faces as they read the message their "past selves" wrote to them on the first day of school when they have finished the school year!
The back page of the letter (which can be included or left out) is a place for students to record their favorites at this moment in time. They always laugh seeing how much they have changed by the end of the year!
Differentiated versions are included so that more advanced students can write a letter without a template.
This activity is also available as part of a pack of 14 Awesome Back-to-School Activities available for a discount! Please search for it to get more great activities for the first week of school at a discounted price!
