Getting students back in a routine after Fall break can sometimes be a feat. Once thing for certain is they will all want to tell you about their time away from school. Read on for fun (and free!) Fall writing activities that give your students a chance to tell you all about it, in writing!
Fall writing activities
When excited students burst in after break they are usually filled with stories they can’t wait to tell you. Have your students write all about it on these newspaper themed publishing pages that now have a digital version! Use the journal prompts all week to have students tell even more.
Would you like to use these with your students after break? Just pop your email in below and I’ll send them your way.
I’ve included publishing pages and prompts that you can use to make low prep bulletin boards and hallway displays.
NOTE: Be sure to check your spam folder, If you don’t see it there and you used a school email address, that usually means your school blocked it. I do recommend using a personal email address as many schools and districts block outside emails with attachments.
After you get your class writing add shades of Fall to your students vocabulary with free shades of meaning vocabulary activities. Grab the activity pages and the acorn templates and make acorns using paint sample cards.
