I'm looking for a new first day assignment/activity. I am teaching 9th grade English regular and honors, and then 10th grade regular English. I want to do a more fun activity and then I also want to have a writing assignment. I don't want to do the "write a page about yourself" thing because that gets boring (for them and for me). I'd like to get to know them, but I also want to get a feel of their writing capabilities. Any ideas?
