Product Description
Back to School, no prep, activities for Middle School students that will not disappoint! Students will complete 6 engaging activities for getting back to school. These activities will help students prepare to be in the classroom after the summer break and will help teachers get to know their middle school learners. Simply print and teach! All materials are included in this package.

Activity 1: Students will write a letter to their teacher. This is a confidential letter so students can feel comfortable sharing information with their teacher through writing.
Activity 2: Students will get to know their classmates by participating in a Find a Friend activity where students get a chance to circulate around the class and learn about others interests. 2 different versions available.
Activity 3: Students will write an autobiographical poem about themselves. This is a great activity to display in the classroom for parent night! I have hung these beside a photo of the student. Very visual bulletin board display! Instructions and writing template included.
Activity 4: Students will create a banner using an acrostic poem that can be hung in the classroom. This is a great way to emphasize building community in the classroom setting as each student contributes a flag to the whole class banner. Banner instructions and template are included.
Activity 5: High Five - Students trace their hand and write about themselves on each finger following a key. Great wall display!
