Fun School Bus Creative Writing Templates and Projects blue bullet point At the beginning of the school year teachers often get to know their students through an information worksheet that students fill out about themselves.

blue bullet point If you do not have the space for a long school bus display in your classroom, you can assemble these Back to School bus templates into groups of 5 students together and have 5 or 6 smaller school buses representing all of your students' information sheets together.

blue bullet point Remember, you can make your school bus display as long as you want by gluing as many student bus templates together as you wish. Each student fills in their information section and draws and colors a picture of himself or herself in the bus windows.

Welcome Back To School Elementary Students Bus Photograph blue bullet point Although this is a fairly short writing activity, I still have my students complete a first draft. By taking the time to write a first draft, I can ensure that my students' final drafts contain less spelling and capitalization errors.

blue bullet point As my students are filling out their first drafts, I walk around the classroom and read their responses and make comments about the interesting information that I have learned about my new students.

blue bullet point When a student has finished his first draft, he raises his hand, and I go over and quickly glance at his work and point out the mistakes that I feel that he should edit and revise. Then, I give this student his final draft bus template.

blue bullet point Below is an example of the first draft worksheet, which should be cut into two rectangles and given to two students.

Heidi, I just had to write and let you know that your website has helped me create the most awesome author study of Roald Dahl's books. My students loved completing the big animal shaped projects you designed for The Enormous Crocodile, Esio Trot, and The Giraffe, and the Pelly and Me. For the final project, they had so much fun writing and drawing about the characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory using your Willy Wonka Factory project. Thanks for sharing your scrumdiddlyumptious ideas !

I feel so fortunate to have found your website and I have referred several of my co-workers to your website. Just for the month of January, there were three teachers displaying your book reports. I had the trophy reports, my neighbor to the left had the computer reports, and my neighbor to the right had the birthday cake reports. Thank you so very much for all of your work!

I just wanted to say thank you for the most amazing teaching resources that I have ever come across in my thirty years of teaching. I have used many of your book report sets this year and my students absolutely loved them. What was particularly pleasing was seeing some of my reluctant readers (especially the boys) really wanting to read books and complete the activities. Keep up the great work!
