This is a great book and lesson to do at the beginning of the school year!
Use the vocabulary cards to introduce the story words.
Use the book "How I Spent My Summer Vacation" by Mark Teague to introduce/review sequence of events. *If you do not already have this, book, you can find it on youtube!*
Pass out the graphic organizer for students to brainstorm what they did over summer vacation. They can either draw pictures or write (or both!)
Then, have them write their final copy. I provided my students with sentence frames and key sequencing words to use (First, Next, Then, and Finally).
