Not sure about what to do for the first day of school? This survey is a great tool to assess students. This 3 page survey is divided into three sections: About You, See What You Know, and a Writing Sample.
Section 1: About You
-Asks students favorite books, what they would like to improve on, and to create goals for this year. Students also determine ways to achieve their goals.
Section 2: See What You Know
- Asks students questions to assess what they know, such as, "Are book titles underlined or put in quotes?" and "What is a metaphor?" I include an answer key to all these questions.
Section 3: Writing Sample
- Students write two paragraphs about their summer so that you can analyze their writing abilities.
A great tool to get students thinking about the new school year!
