To give children an academic break without “slacking off completely”, use this great whole-class writing activity! Just print and pass!
Give each student a summer-themed writing prompt or title (both included) and set the timer! Depending on the writing fluency of your class, give them 5-10 minutes to start a story. When the timer dings, the students pass the paper to their neighbor and begin adding on to the previous story. Make sure kids know that they don't need to finish their stories until the very last rotation and then they can have fun reading them out loud!
Included are 25 Summer-Themed Titles and 25 Summer-Themed Writing Prompts, just print on colored paper and watch their brains work!
