Use this fun back-to-school Skittles writing activity to learn a little bit about your students! Buy some Skittles, pour them in a jar, and have fun with your students as they close their eyes and pick one candy out of the jar. Whatever color they pick corresponds to the question they have to answer first!
There are five questions on this resource that ask about your students’ summer vacations, what they are excited for and worried/nervous about for the school year, and asks them to set a personal goal for the year. They will have fun eating the candy and practicing writing in full sentences as they complete the activity and share more about themselves!
Always be sure to check your school’s policies about giving students candy. In addition, be sure to check that none of your students have allergies to the candy you will use.
