I LOVE starting the year off with autobiographies. The students eagerly dive right into writing and you get to know so much about them at the same time!
This resource contains a mix of brainstorming/planning pages, a rubric, paragraph templates with check-lists, final draft paper(s) and a cover page.
I also highly recommend inviting parents in to celebrate their finished work. We often have students trace their whole bodies and make life-size versions of themselves to have on display. So fun!
The Autobiography itself is broken down into 5 sections:
- Introducing Yourself
- Your Family
- Your Friends
- Your Goals & Dreams
- Your Role Models
