PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Back to School - Snapshots of Summer (Craftivity with Writing Activities}

Need a fun craft for the beginning of the year? This camera holds "snapshots" of the summer that your students can use to share their memories of the summer with their new classmates as well as with their families. What a great icebreaker!

These cameras make great projects to complete before Open House. I put these on the students' desks so that the parents can see their child's perception of the summer.

** Update: I put them on a bulletin board to cheer up the room. Later, I gave them back to the students at the end of the year. Then they could see their writing progress as well as remember what happened almost a year ago!

Included in this pack:
There are two differentiated versions of a friendly letter form that the students may use to write a thank you letter to their parents or loved ones for taking them on a trip or to a special place like an amusement park.

Also, there is a mini book pattern for the students to complete if you would like for them to write about each event.

I have included versions for the next few years, 2014, 2015, and 2016. I will update the file with the upcoming years in the future.

This is included in a bundle called Back to School Bonanza. If you would like to check that out, please click HERE.
