Since I read First Day Jitters
anyway, I was thinking that would be good to have them write about.
I am not really looking for anything on teaching writing through the year, just a great first day idea (not necessarily a prompt...should have worded that better
). I just want to gauge their writing in a journal type format...no correcting it or anything.
Thanks for the link and the ideas so far!
This is my 4th year that I am coming into. I finally remembered (it's been a crazy summer of me doing all sorts of planning) that I always have them write about how they felt before the first day of school. Many times they write about how nervous they were and then they got here and saw me and realized it was not so bad. I really like to read what they write about...but thought it might be neat to try a new prompt.
