As we move from summer and head back to school, this is a fun way to get students thinking about the things they did during the summer, and the changes that will happen to their routines etc., as they head back to school. This would be an easy beginning of the year/back to school writing activity for your students.
This download contains:
1. 1 copy of the My Thinking Before I Write page to help students discuss, brainstorm, and generate ideas prior to writing. (I have included two copies of this page, 1 with U.S. spelling and 1 with English spelling.)
2. 1 draft page for students to complete their rough drafts
3. 1 - 11 x 17 good copy page for their finished poem to be displayed on.
