Need an original idea for a back-to-school writing activity? Hop on the school bus! This back to school mini-book includes beginning of the year writing prompts and a title page where the students can draw themselves driving the mini-bus. Since most school are moving to Common Core, we’ve aligned it for those standards. This is perfect for the your first writing activity of the new school year!
The writing prompts on each page are geared for students to set goals for their academic year and also reflect on their first day of school Here are the prompts:
- This year I hope:
- I want to learn about:
- On the first day of school:
Here’s a peek at one of the inside pages completed by the lovely Julia. The kids colored them to add more visual interest and start exercising those fine motor skills!
I hope your students write about their high expectations for the school year too!
We mounted our books on black construction paper and stapled them together. This activity is a perfect keepsake for a child’s memory book or a great first addition to their yearly writing portfolio.
