As an elementary school kid, I always looked forward to telling my classmates all the cool things I did during the summer. I also usually wanted to tell my teacher about my summer… and so did everyone else! Teachers can facilitate a mass “share your summer experience” activity with this simple (self explanatory!) page. Depending on your grade level, have your students draw or write about each of the 5 prompts.
Some students don’t have amazing vacation stories to tell, so I tried to include things that every kid can write/draw about (like “things I ate”) when I was creating this page. Good luck on your first day!
Confession… I’m not crazy about poetry. I usually prefer stories. Sometimes I feel like teachers go way overboard in dissecting poetry. This graphic organizer guides my poetry reviews. We go over enough that the kids think about the poem, but we’re not beating a dead horse. Maybe you’ll find it useful too. Enjoy!
I’ve posted another fun freebie over at my Teachers Pay Teachers Store! This time, it’s a graphic organizer all about what good writers do all throughout the writing process. Click the button below to check it out! Thanks!
Check out this printable graphic organizer/blank timeline I added on my Teachers Pay Teachers store. Yes, it’s still FREE! Perfect for history lessons, summarizing stories, or describing science observations!
One of the fourth grade English Language Arts standards in the Common Core is about first and second hand accounts. What can you use to teach this? I’ve got you covered! My fourth post over at We Are Teachers is a graphic organizer all about it!
