Prep was super simple.
I printed off a copy of the two different writing rubrics for each student, gathered some pencils and we were all set.
I asked my students to sit in a circle and share places they went, favorite things they did, and their most favorite memory of the summer.
To record their responses, we made a chart of their responses so that everyone could easily see and follow along.
Students had a great time sharing their memories and hearing from their friends!
My Summer Report
In small groups, I helped my students choose the writing page that best fit their ability level.
For students who were still learning print awareness, I encouraged them to draw pictures while more advanced students chose the report with lines.
Using the lists we had created, children decided what they wanted to share and copied words from the board or drew their own pictures.
When they were complete, we shared as a class and displayed their reports on our writing wall.
