Apple 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?
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.
These unique apple writing templates measure 6.5 inches in width and 6.5 inches in height.
For creative writing assignments, I believe that it is important for students to go through the writing process.
For this reason, my students never begin their creative writing assignments by writing on their final draft apple 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.
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.
After students have edited and revised their first drafts, you should give them their final draft apple templates.
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.
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.
If you want this to be a longer writing assignment, simply give your students an additional second apple template.
These apple writing templates contain thick black borders, which makes it easy for students to cut out the apple templates by themselves.
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?
This set of Back to School teaching resources also includes a one page apple template.
Below is an example of the first draft worksheet that is used with the one page apple template.
Below is an example of the one page apple template in red.
Below are examples of the one page
apple writing templates in white, green, and yellow.
There are red, green, and yellow apple accent pieces with phrases written on them.
There are plain red, green, and yellow apple accent pieces.
Can you remember your first day at a new school? Can you remember your first day of school as a brand new teacher? First day jitters aren't just for kindergarten students!
It's the first day of school and Sarah Jane Hartwell is nervous and wants to stay in her bed. Mr. Hartwell tries to ease her nerves with calm reassurance and wise advice.
The plot leads to a very cute and surprising twist at the end of the story when the readers learn that the teacher is the one who is nervous about her first day of school.

I stumbled across your website over the weekend and I'm SO glad I did! Some great ideas and an extra thank you for the UK spellings! I bought the back to school pencils, punctuation puppies, Willy Wonka group project and the characters! I think these are great resources and even though it's the summer holidays, I've been into school to get my display paper up and have put up the title banners - they look brilliant! Thank you!

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!
