Here's a product to use in-between all those writing prompts and serious writing pieces.
Take a break and have students reflect on their school year. Hand out a page at a time. Students can begin working on their scrapbook now. One method is to make a reflection at the end of each month. Doing so students can see their progression of positive thinking, activities, attitudes, etc. or not so positive. In either case, it will help students chronicle their year, and make on the spot changes where needed. Last, it enables students to write and apply skills learned month to month.
A collection of 28 pages with engaging sentence starters direct students to think about their school year. Have students select any page [5-10-20, etc. ] they wish to use to begin to build their scrapbook.
Each page contains a decorative border and black lined page for writing.
Includes a blank page.
Many copies of this page can be run off for students to actually paste a 3 dimensional object [tickets, sample paper, report card, photos, etc.] which can be placed directly after the individual writing page.
Another idea is to have students sketch an image directly on a corner of the page.
When students have completed the project, punch 2 holes on either the top or side. Then thread yarn or twine through the holes to finish the scrapbook.
Students will enjoy this keepsake years down the road when they reflect on their writing, and particular grade level experience.
