Recently I had a writing assignment for my 2nd Grade Middle School Students (8th grade America)
First they took a job quiz with their partner and then they had to fill out worksheet that looked like the following:
My partner’s job is _______________________.
My name is _________________. I am ________ years old. My best friend is named ________. I like (him/her) because (he/she) is ___________________.
I am interested in _________________. I am not interested in _________________.
Next year, I will _____________
In the future, my job will be a ___________________ <–write result from activity #1 here)
One day I will be_______________________
