Color Pencil Templates: Are you looking for a fun creative writing assignment and a colorful bulletin board display idea?
For this writing assignment, students write about the following topic: "I am a Colorful Student."
Are you looking for a creative writing assignment and bulletin board display that is individualized to the grade level that you teach?
This Color Pencil Templates set has 8 separate writing templates that have Grades 1 - 8 written on the student worksheets and templates.
There are also 8 bulletin board display banners for each grade level (Grades 1 - 8) included in this set of teaching resources.
For this creative writing assignment, students choose 5 words or phases that describe themselves and write them in the 5 pencils. In the pencil box area, students write a description about themselves, as well as their birthdays along the side of the box.
Below is an example of the writing areas in these color pencil templates.
Although this activity can be used anytime of the school year, it is ideal for a Back To School creative writing activity.
This assignment will not take your students very long to complete. The pencil box templates are on one page and they are easy to cut out.
The color pencil templates measure 6 inches in width and 10 inches in height.
This quick creative writing assignment will provide you with student work samples that you can post on your bulletin board immediately, along with the colorful bulletin board banner and additional color pencil box accent pieces.
"We Are Colorful Students" contains the
following teaching resources for Grades 1 - 8:
Since the templates and banners in this set use the word colorful in them, there is a second copy of these teaching resources which uses the spelling colourful for teachers in countries that use this spelling.
Below are examples of the first draft worksheets. This creative writing teaching resources set includes grade level templates for Grades 1 - 8.
Below are examples of the final draft color pencil templates. Students write 5 words or phrases that describe themselves in the 5 pencils. Then, students write a description about themselves in the pencil box section, as well as their birthdays.
At the bottom of each pencil box is the title of this writing assignment "I AM A COLORFUL GRADE _ STUDENT!"
These color pencil templates have been customized to contain Grades 1 - 8 written on them. There are templates with the spelling of either colorful or colourful written on them.
Below are 3 different examples of the final draft pencil box templates.
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 at home on their computers.
This time is valuable and better spent on developing your classroom curriculum, so I have designed a matching 5 page banner for your bulletin board display.
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 color pencil templates.
The first banner that is included in this Back To School English teaching resources set is a general banner that is not specific to any particular grade level. There is a second banner in this set with the spelling colourful written on it (not shown).
Instead of using the general banner above, I wanted to have a bulletin board banner that was specific to the grade level that I was teaching.
This set of teaching resources includes separate banners for Grades 1 - 8, and there are two versions of each banner using the spelling of colorful and colourful.
Below: To help you quickly decorate your bulletin board, I have included
4 pencil box accent pieces in this Back to School English teaching resources set.
I hope that this set of creative writing resources that I have designed to be grade level specific helps you to have a creative writing assignment that is targeted to the grade level that you teach.
The specific grade level banners and accent pieces are designed to help you create a colorful bulletin board display that is also targeted for the grade level that you teach.
Although you will only use one set of these grade level resources this year, be sure to save the entire set of color pencil templates and banners to use for the future. As teachers, we are often switching the grades that we teach and you can use this same writing idea with the other grade levels that you teach in the future.

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!
