Writing Activities to Help Students at the Start of the School Year
Help students in your class get to know one another better through writing. Writing A-Z Back-to-School Writing activities provide investigative opportunities for students to have fun learning about each other while improving their writing skills.
Why Use Back-To-School Writing
Back-to-school time can be tough for some children. Back-to-School Writing resources serve as icebreakers to help students become more comfortable in the classroom. Writing activities can also help inform you about student writing skills at the beginning of the school year so that you can plan instruction for each student.
How to Use Back-To-School Writing
Each Back-to-School Writing activity asks students to write different kinds of information about themselves or a partner. Print and hand out one or more of the activities to help your students ease into their new class.
Some activities are designed to be completed at home with parents or guardians. Other activities can be done in the classroom either individually or in pairs.
