1st Day Writing Prompt

I am sure that there have been several posts on this topic, but I looked back over the last few pages and was unsuccessful. I am looking for a fun writing prompt to give my students on the first or second day of school. I would like it to be fun and creative, but I would like it to help me assess the students' writing abilities as well. Thanks!

You can have the students write a mission statement or what their goals are for the upcoming year. It's always a fun prompt to look back on at the end of the year.

I give my students a "surprise bag" filled with a pen, pencil, bookmark, eraser, and some other small things I have handy. I staple the bag closed and ask them to write a paragraph discussing what they think is in the bag and why.

I love the idea of having students write about what's in the mystery bag!
