PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

They call it the "Fall" semester, but in my district, there's over a month of Summer remaining on the first day of school!

I have a hard time getting kids interested in Fall-related activities. Colored leaves, pilgrims, and apples just don't do the trick with urban kids in Title I schools. But there's one thing I've found every one of my students loves, and that's THE OUTDOORS. With that in mind, I made this bundle. It started out as just a dozen or so figurative language worksheets with a sports and outdoor theme. Since it was a hit, I kept expanding it. Now its over 80 pages and includes figurative language, grammar, and writing!

Description
To sum up the whole bundle in one sentence: this is a sports- and outdoor-themed unit of informational and creative writing activities scaffolded with fun worksheets that reinforce the fundamentals of good writing, with an emphasis on figurative language.

How I Use It
I don't give my students the entire bundle at one time. I like to pick and choose, do about 10 pages a week as a homework packet for the first few weeks of school, and keep copies of some pages handy for "early finishers" or extra credit.
