FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL WRITING ACTIVITY: DIGITAL GOOGLE DRIVE or GOOGLE CLASSROOM
Start your back to school by having students complete this digital first day assignment. Writing To Your Future Self has students type in a one page worksheet with four sections about themselves, their world, their interests, and their goals. Prompting questions are detailed, so students will know exactly what they can include in each section. At the end of the course or at the end of the year, email this back to your students to see if they have changed.
The best part is that students complete the assignments online! The assignment are created with Google Slides and can easily be shared with Google Drive, Google Classroom or even via email! You don't have to be a tech savvy person to make this work in your class. The detailed step-by-step instructions provided make it painless and easy.
WHAT TEACHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THIS RESOURCE
♥ This AWESOME assignment engaged even my LEAST involved Freshmores (students going at 9th grade English for the 2nd time) and got some of the best "first day of school" writing I've ever received. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
♥ This will be a great way to start students off at the beginning of the year using Google Classroom. It'll also be easy to share them with them at the end of the year. Thanks!
♥ Love it! I've done a similar activity with my students for years, but this is an up to date version. The kids will absolutely love completing this using their new Chrome books! Thank you so much for bringing us up to date! :)
Not only is this resource great for discussion on both the first and last day of a course/school, but is also a great way to get to know your students! All you have to do is give students the link to the assignment, and a copy of the assignment immediately goes in their Google Drive!
