During the first week of school, students complete this class activity in which they predict what fifth grade will be like and create a page for a class book. Teachers gain information about students emotions and fears along with a baseline writing sample.
Included in this packet:
* teacher instructions
*graphic organizer for pre-writing
*differentiated planning notes based on reading and writing ability,
color coded or black and white versions
*student writing page for the class book
*three choices of class book cover - 2 colored versions included
along with a black and white version.
Note: I usually take pictures of students on the first day of school and use them on this project. However, another option would be to have students draw a portrait of themselves at the top of the page.
I hope your class learns how everyone has the same worries and fears, but that as a team you will grow and learn together throughout the year.
