A fun character building homework assignment for the first week of school. This is a great way to get your first sample of writing from students, teach them a little bit about life, and get to know them as individuals.
The assignment asks students to take the time to do some good deeds, describe them, and turn it all in.
A teacher friend of mine actually came up with seven of these suggestions, and I came up with the other two. Enjoy this freebie! :)
