This document is used in my classroom as a creative writing activity. Every Monday, my first graders write about "news" that happened during their weekend. As you can imagine, the farther into the year we get, the longer their writings become. Typically, I start with just the first page for the beginning of the year.
This is a great warm-up activity for Mondays--and gives students a chance to share those exciting things they're dying to tell you after the weekend! I collect their writings and bind them into a book to give back at the end of the school. It is SO neat to see their writing improvement throughout the year.
There is a large space for a picture as well as grade-appropriate writing space.
