This is a back to school/beginning of the year writing and craft bundle.
In this pack you will find 4 writing and craft templates. Each topic has writing templates for lower and upper elementary handwriting lines. A graphic organizer comes for each prompt. The topics include:
1) Snapping Summer Vacation Memories - students write about favorite summer vacation memories. They get a camera template, where they draw a favorite memory in the camera, and attach the camera to the writing. A poster for a bulletin board has been included.
2) Rockin' the New Year - Students will write about how they will rock this school year by improving in areas they had trouble with or want to get better in since last year. A boombox template is provided to color and attach to the writing. Another option is given - students do not have to write on the writing template, but instead on small booklet pages that they can attach behind the boombox and make it a booklet project.
3) The Night Before School Started - Students will write about how they felt and what they did the night before school started. They can either use the writing template provided, or they can use the lined cloud provided. For the first option, students get a boy or girl cut out and a blank cloud where they can draw one thing from what they wrote. They will attach this craft to the writing. For the second option, students get another cloud that has the title, and behind it they will write their thoughts on a lined cloud piece, which they can make into a booklet. They will attach this project to the boy or girl for a cute bulletin display.
4) This Year is Going to be Awesome - Students will write about everything they are excited about for the new year. They will get a frame template, where they can draw themselves doing something they are eager to do or learn this year.
***Also included is a summer vacation snapshot memory book. Students get a polaroid picture cover page and various writing templates to create a summer memory booklet.
*** Finally, I have included pieces to create a beginning of the year bulletin board titled, "Shining Brightly All Year Long." The title pieces are provided that you can print onto colored paper, or glue on construction paper and cut around to make it pop. A sun template is provided on which you can glue a picture of the child or they can draw themselves. A flower is provided where they can write one or two ways they plan to do great this year and shine bright! Sunglasses accent pieces are also included. Create the bulletin board on blue or cloud background paper, with the picture suns all around, and with grass on the bottom and the flowers sticking out.
