Product Description
Super for the first week back to school! (And it is a freebie!)

How will your students get to school each day? And perhaps a more interesting question – how would they like to get to school each day?

In this short writing and illustrating activity, kids brainstorm fun and imaginative ways to get to school this year, then finish the sentence starter and illustrate their idea. Ride a horse, piggyback on a gorilla, skateboard, or maybe fly on a magic carpet!

A class set makes a great back-to-school wall display – and make it into a class book for the classroom library afterwards.

This activity is inspired by Jerry Pallotta and David Biedrzycki’s book, How Will I Get to School This Year? (Pallotta, Jerry and D. Biedryzycki. How Will I Get to School This Year? Scholastic Inc., NY, New York, 2011).

Read the book, discuss the fun ways the character imagines getting to school, and then brainstorm more fun and wild ways your students could get to school! Next, students write their own sentence / short story about how they would get to school and illustrate it. For a follow up activity, there is a page for a short story about an adventure on the way to school while using his / her creative transportation.

This product includes a brainstorm page, a sentence starter and illustration page (the main activity), and a page for a follow-up, creative writing story page.

Have a great school year, and please check out my other freebies! :)
