I hope you are all enjoying your summer break! I know I am! We've already been swimming, playing at the park, lounging in the back yard, jumping, bouncing and just relaxing! Summer is always one of my favorite times of the year. I can't wait to hear about your summer activities! I have some fun Summer Activities you can complete to help me get to know you better this summer, and completing them will help get you ready for our classroom! First let me show you some things I've done so far this summer!
Final picture. I promise! Notice anything different?????
Please make sure you complete all of the activities above to help me get to know you! The following are activities you can choose from to earn a special prize at Open House or the first day of school! If you complete all three I will have to do something extra special for you!
Choose one of the following to show me what you've been reading this summer! Completing this activity will earn you a prize at Open House or the first day of school!
a. Create a Google Presentation that gives a strong summary of the book.
(Make sure you include Who? What? When? Where? and Why?) Then give a short paragraph that tells me whether you'd recommend this book to others. Why or Why not? Make sure you share it with me so I can see it!
b. You As A Reader - This one is easy! Create a short video that tells me about you as a reader. Do you love reading? What are the last three books that you've read? What makes you a good reader? What goals do you have for yourself this year for reading? When your video is ready you can just email it to firstname.lastname@example.org! Easy!!!
c. Writers are Readers- This activity is for my students who love to write! After reading a book, write a letter to me pretending to be one of the characters from your book. Be sure you include all the parts of a letter (heading, greeting, body, closing and signature) and lots of details from the text! You can email me the letter or bring it in with you to Open House or the first day of school!
