This is a fun reflective writing activity that 5th graders can complete as they are finishing up their first week in the 5th grade. The directions ask the student to choose their favorite memory from the first week and explain in detail the moment and why it is his/her favorite. There's even a space for the writer to illustrate their writing once they have finished.
To share , I cover the name on the paper with a post-it note and have students try to guess the writer of the paper based on the memories!
This is also a great way to get a paragraph diagnostic the first week of school!
Have a great first week back!
