PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

It is the last week or two of school. Your kids want to get outside and, secretly, you do too. Still, you want to do something meaningful. What to do?

Have a sidewalk chalk festival promoting summer literacy. I have collected ideas from the internet for this presentation. I do not claim to own them and this is totally free.

Have students create a design promoting summer literacy. Then teach students to use a drawing grid. (Google "grid drawing worksheets" to find some for practicing.) From there students can use a chalk line (found at hardware stores - cheap) to create a larger grid on the cement outside. Then they can enlarge their design and color it in.

Watch the forecast for about a week of dry, sunny days. My students were able to transfer the drawings in about an hour and a half (some less) and then color it in in an hour and a half. Our squares were about 5 ft by 5 ft. You will want some dry days to enjoy the designs too.

Have fun!

What kind of chalk do you recommend? What do the students rest on while they draw so they don't get covered in chalk?
