This activity is intended to be used during the first week of school.
Students will brainstorm events from their summer break and organize them before writing them into a short paper. Students are given detailed directions, a brainstorming page (graphic organizer) and final draft paper for them to write their final draft about their summer.
This activity is a great way to assess your students' writing abilities at the beginning of the year, as well as allow each student to share information about themselves so that you and their classmates can get to them better.
