Any who!! I found the cutest book to use for my first back to school writing activity. And guess what? It has a western theme....Too cute....
I will read aloud this story to my students and talk about how the character used his imagination to tell how he spent his summer vacation. We will brain storm different things to do on summer vacation real and made up. I will then have students create their own story real or make believe, using the writing prompt "How I Spent My Summer Vacation." I will have my students write their final copy on this writing page. Click on the picture to grab a copy..
I also created a "Back to School Writing Prompts" Packet that I have uploaded to my Teachers Notebook store. It is on sale for $1.25 this week!
