Kicking off a New School Year features a soccer-themed writing craftivity where students can write about what they are looking forward to learning in their new grade, what their favorite part of school is, what they are looking forward to learning about, as well as some of their favorite things. There is also a page included for students to create a self portrait. Use this writing project to ease students back into the swing of writing in school and as a community builder where students can share their work and get to know one another. When finished these can also be used as a bulletin board display. The second part of this pack includes reflection and goal setting sheets to get students thinking about their learning right away. Students can set a goal for themselves for the school year, as well as plan how they are going to achieve their goals. Two different soccer-themed goal writing sheets are included. (All writing pages have differentiated writing lines for each of the grade levels.) Use the goal setting writing as another bulletin board display with "Shoot for your Learning Goals!" Soccer themed illustrations are also included for use with a bulletin board display if you wish to include them. Click on the preview for additional images. Thanks for looking!
