Drawing your Summer Vacation

This is a twist to the “What I did on my Summer Vacation” lesson for the first day of school. It is a great icebreaker in any class.

Explore Summers Past and Present

Whether it is a special song, a favorite movie, or a family vacation, everyone has special summer memories that are fun to share. In this activity, children think about their own memories and answer questions before asking the same questions of someone older. After comparing summer stories, work together to make a poster that shows what is the same and what is different.

Olympic Field Day

To provide a theme-based field day every four years that helps celebrate the Summer Olympics.

Making Connections

This telephone call really helps to renew the connection between old/new students with the teacher. I look forward to this every year and I know the students do also.
