Product Description
Get your students writing about themselves, while you get to know them!

This print and teach writing activity is perfect for Back To School. Students will write about their "favorites." Students get to choose what they write about, as long as they are writing about their favorite something, such as food, book, restaurant, sport, color, etc. Using this at the beginning of the school year helps teachers and students connect. It includes:

* A list of common core standards addressed in the lesson.
* An assignment sheet for students.
* 4 task cards to get students thinking.
* A brainstorming sheet.
* A list of introductions for students to apply when writing.
* A rubric.
* A student-led editing sheet.
* SIX! choices of covers and notebook pages for students to personalize their final drafts.

This assignment is a wonderful way to teach students the writing process, and it has tools to address the process. I like to use it for back to school so I get to know my students. I often make a book of my favorites along with students to introduce myself. Narrowing the topic to a "favorite" but allowing the students to choose the favorite perfectly balances the need for structure and personalization.

This narrative writing activity is in a bundle! If you plan to teach several narratives throughout the year, you may be interested in my Narrative Bundle which also includes an introductory power point. This bundle has tons of writing activities to keep your kids focused in the classroom around holidays!

This purchase includes everything I use when teaching the lesson. Get your students writing as they head back to school!
