Ready for back to school? Brainy Bears sure are! This has several activities to help you out.
I created 2 glyphs, several writing prompts to be done in a journals or not, a class graphing activity, and an interviewing a new friend activity!
The interview activity is a great one for the beginning of the school year! The students use the interview questions to learn about a new or old friend. Then there is a paired writing activity to complete after the interview. There is a fill in the blank style or a slightly more challenging version that starts the sentence for them. There are many choices to have the students draw their new friend or color a kid face. (See preview for more details on this activity)
I have included a "Summertime Rewind" page for students to reflect on what they did this past summer. I have also included 3 writing prompts that could be completed on a provided page or in a journal using the small prompt pages. The prompts include: My favorite book is, I think my new teacher will, and I feel ____about school because.
There are 2 glyphs (boy and girl bear), that are created horizontal and vertical for your preference printing. (The horizontal versions are the exact same as the vertical versions.)
The graphing activity has the students create a class graph as well as their own on a pairing worksheet with questions. My students love this and it always goes well!
