This back to school writing craft is a great way for your students to show you what they have learned about being a super student in their new classroom, and it makes a great display for open house or meet the teacher night!*
To prepare, just copy the writing template of your choice for each student, along with a variety of clip art faces. I’ve included six different boy faces and six different girl faces, so each student can select a face that looks like his or her own. Writing templates with and without sentence starters and two line options are included.
After writing, students can glue their writing to construction paper to provide a colorful background, color their faces, and paste them on the top. If students need more room to write or draw, I’ve included blank lined page and bordered drawing page options to staple behind the front page before gluing. Readers will simply flip up the first page to continue reading or to view the picture.
