Wayside School Series writing activity:
At the beginning of the year, always start off reading this book. Then I finish off the year with Wayside School is Falling Down. After each book, I do this awesome writing activity with my students.
Basically students are each assigned their own chapter and have to write a chapter about themselves in our classroom. The goal is to make the story wacky and fun. Then when all the chapters are finished, I publish the stories into a book and read them to the class.
In this download there is a lesson plan, a graphic organizer, rubric, title page for your book, and writing pages for students to write their story. Seriously one of my favorite activities with my students and they love it!
