    Here's a writing project that I have used at the beginning of the school year with my students:
    I have a small brown bag with three objects that represent me. I have a chart paper up with an intro paragraph, three paragraphs describing each object, and a closing paragraph restating beginning and telling students I am looking forward to the school year and finding out about them. As I read the paragraphs, I take out the objects one at a time to show class. After I have shared my bag, I give each child a brown bag with a note attached explaining that we will be working on a writing project in class and what to bring. I state that everything must fit in the bag, not be breakable or of extreme value. Pictures can take the place of items that won't fit in the bag or that are of people or pets.
    Good Luck!
