This writing assignment is perfect for the end of the year as a wrap up activity for your classroom (especially perfect for the last week) or would be a great substitute lesson. All that's required is to download the word template and insert your own name where highlighted.
This assignment guides students through drafting a letter to the teacher's future students that can be displayed in the classroom or handed out the following year (depending on teacher's preference). It's a great way for students to reflect through writing what they learned in the classroom, what they liked and any advice they would share. It's so important to teach and foster reflection in the classroom, especially in the middle school/high school environment where that quality and practice is not habitual.
This assignment has sentence starters so students can begin writing right away without needing help or getting stuck. It requires 4 paragraphs with three sentence starters each which helps non-active writers complete the task at hand and gives avid writers a launching point to write as much as they want about their year in your classroom.
Best of luck and hope this assignment works well for you in your classroom!
