It is the last week or two of school. Your kids want to get outside and, secretly, you do too. Still, you want to do something meaningful. What to do?
Have a sidewalk chalk festival promoting summer literacy. I have collected ideas from the internet for this presentation. I do not claim to own them and this is totally free.
Have students create a design promoting summer literacy. Then teach students to use a drawing grid. (Google "grid drawing worksheets" to find some for practicing.) From there students can use a chalk line (found at hardware stores - cheap) to create a larger grid on the cement outside. Then they can enlarge their design and color it in.
Watch the forecast for about a week of dry, sunny days. My students were able to transfer the drawings in about an hour and a half (some less) and then color it in in an hour and a half. Our squares were about 5 ft by 5 ft. You will want some dry days to enjoy the designs too.
