My Goals This Year Back to School Lesson Plans and Idea blue bullet point Pencil Writing Templates: During the first few days of school, it is helpful for students to think about the goals that they want to work towards and achieve during the new school year.

blue bullet point This is an ideal Back To School creative writing activity that will not take much time, is easy to assemble, and will provide you with student work samples that you can post on your bulletin board immediately during the first week of school.

blue bullet point These unique Back to School pencil templates measure 2.5 inches in width and 17.5 inches in height.

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

blue bullet point For this reason, my students never begin their creative writing assignments by writing on their final draft pencil 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 worksheet that is included in this set of teaching resources.

blue bullet point The writing lines and spaces on the first draft worksheets match the lines and spaces on the final draft pencil templates.

blue bullet point After students have edited and revised their first drafts, you should give them their final draft pencil writing templates. This pencil project is easy to assemble and both templates are on the same worksheet.

Below is an example of the final draft pencil templates.

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!
