Summer Reflections with Froggy is a great activity for the beginning of school. It meets many common core objectives along with several 21st Century Skills. This printable includes:
-a lesson plan for the week
-a circle map for the children to use individually
-a consensus map to be used with a small group (This is a strong, challenging activity!)
-sun craftivity with patterns for the sun and the writing activity
The plan includes reading Froggy Goes To School, completing an oral retell with think, pair, share, a whole group circle map, utilizing the document camera to share pics, small group collaboration and compromise, etc.
