Do you find yourself talking with your kiddos about their favorite days of the school year? Or overhear them talking about them? Well, I’ve got a great class book idea for you!!
Our Favorite Days of… Students can write about their very favorite day of kindergarten (or whatever grade you teach)! Now, I suggest a little brainstorming and discussion so that kiddos don’t struggle to decide on a favorite, but they love love writing about it! Then we all shared ours (I even wrote one ). I did this my first year of teaching and it may have been my favorite thing from the end of the year. I haven’t even told you my favorite part! I saved their writing and compiled it into a class book. Then, the first couple of days of the next year (with my new class) I read the class book! My new kinders loved getting to hear about the fun things they might get to do, and it was a great discussion too about the writers they would become by the end of the year! They ATE IT UP! And, I loved going back and reading and reminiscing…so everyone wins, right!?
I’ve created a little freebie pack for you all! It includes cover pages and writing pages for K-5 plus one that uses just “school” instead of a grade level so that multi-grade classes and special ed classes could also utilize it. I included a half page with picture space and a full page of writing paper for you to choose from!
Get it here!
Enjoy!!! I would love to hear about how you use it in your classroom!!
