Back To School Creative Writing Printable Worksheets blue bullet point Welcome to my Back To School printable worksheets page. This page contains examples of colorful worksheets that contain school themes and matching bulletin board display banners.

blue bullet point On this page, you will find blank Back To School worksheets that contain the following themes: book bags, chalkboards, apples, buses, and pencils.

blue bullet point It is often difficult to get students enthusiastic about writing assignments. I have found that my students immediately become more interested in creative writing activities when their writing worksheets are unique and colorful.

blue bullet point For final draft writing assignments, when I give my students colorful printable worksheets to write on, I have found that they tend to use their best effort and they are more careful to not make careless spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors.



blue bullet point I have designed my Back to School printable worksheets and templates to have large borders on them. I cut the white edges off of my students' color stationery, as I think that they look better displayed on a bulletin board this way.

Back To School Book Bag School Supplies blue bullet point My Back To School printable worksheets contain the following teaching resources:

  • 5 page matching bulletin board display banner
  • Black and white printable worksheets for students to write their first drafts on
  • Color printable worksheets for students to write their final drafts on

Back to School Student Book Bag Writing Templates Yellow blue bullet point Back to School Book Bag Templates: This is a generic writing template that does not have a topic selected. You can use these backpack shaped templates for any topic that you want for a Back to School creative writing assignment.

blue bullet point Many of my Back to School creative writing teaching resources have a topic selected for them, so I wanted to provide a writing template that can be used for any topic that you want your students to write about.

blue bullet point The topic that you choose will be a lot more interesting for your students when they get to write on their own book bag worksheets and color their book bags.

blue bullet point Your bulletin board display of your students' Back to School creative writing assignments will stand out and capture everyone's attention with this set of teaching resources that contains student backpacks as the theme.

Back to School Student Book Bag Writing Templates Blue blue bullet point There are 3 different versions of these backpack templates provided in this Back To School printable worksheets set for you to choose from.

blue bullet point Since I am also a teacher, I understand that teachers often need to change or adapt a resource that we find to meet our own needs. I have provided 3 different versions of these backpack templates in order to help you select the version that would best suit your own needs.

blue bullet point The first set of book bag templates has 2 writing areas for students. Below is an example of the first draft worksheet for the first set of book bag teaching resources.

blue bullet point I have left this template blank, so that you could use it for any idea that you can think of: student birthdays, labels for student desks or cubbies, labels for centers, etc.

blue bullet point If you want these book bags to be a smaller size, many computers give you an option to print a smaller version of a document before you select the print option.

Color Book Bag and Backpack Creative Writing Templates

Welcome Back to School Chalkboard blue bullet point I know that it takes teachers a lot of valuable time to assemble their bulletin board displays. Many teachers spend hours of time cutting out large display letters or making a banner on their own at home on their computers.

blue bullet point This time is valuable and better spent on developing your classroom curriculum and grading papers, so I have designed a matching 5 page banner for your Back to School bulletin board display.

blue bullet point If you have access to a laminating machine, you can laminate your banner so that it is durable and you can use it year after year for bulletin board displays of these Back to School chalkboard writing templates.


The first banner (shown below) that is included in this set of teaching resources
is a general banner that is not specific to any particular grade level.

Apple Theme Bulletin Board Display for Elementary Classroom First Day of School

The above banner is included in this Apple Back To School printable worksheets set.

blue bullet point Apple Shaped Writing Templates: Are you looking for an apple shaped writing template that will help you create an eye catching Back to School bulletin board display of your students' creative writing assignments?

blue bullet point In addition to a Back to School assignment, these apple writing templates could also be used at other times during the school year for poetry, health, science, or for a unit on Johnny Appleseed.

Back To School Teacher With Apple blue bullet point These unique apple creative writing templates measure 6.5 inches in width and 6.5 inches in height.

blue bullet point For creative writing assignments, I believe that it is important for students to go through the writing process.

blue bullet point For this reason, my students never begin their creative writing assignments by writing on their final draft templates, instead they write on first draft worksheets. Then, they edit and revise their work on their own, with a partner, or in individual writing conferences with me.

blue bullet point Below is an example of the first draft writing worksheet that is included in this Back To School printable worksheets set. The writing lines and spaces on the first draft worksheets match the lines and spaces on the final draft apple templates.


Apple Theme Creative Writing Worksheet First Draft

Back To School Elementary Man Teacher With Apple blue bullet point After students have edited and revised their first drafts, you should give them their final draft apple templates.

blue bullet point This set is designed to be a flip up book and there is a front page apple template that contains the student's name, date, title, and an area to draw a picture.

blue bullet point The second apple template (page 2 of the flip book) is where the students write their assignments. Students cut out both of their templates and then staple them together to form a flip book.

blue bullet point If you want this to be a longer writing assignment, simply give your students an additional second template.

blue bullet point These apple templates contain thick black borders, which makes it easy for students to cut out the apple templates by themselves.

Below are examples of the final draft apple templates

This set of Back To School printable worksheets includes
red, white, green, and yellow apple templates.

Apple Shaped Creative Writing Templates and Worksheets

Left Apple Template: Name, Date, Title, and Drawing

Back to School Apple for the Elementary School Teacher blue bullet point Are you interested in having a one page apple creative writing assignment for your students to write on instead of a 2 page flip book?

blue bullet point This set of teaching resources also includes a one page apple template.

blue bullet point Below is an example of the first draft worksheet that is used with the one page apple template.

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!
