Here’s a fun way to keep kids engaged in writing right up until summer vacation! This free resource includes 3 black & white postcard templates with a summer theme, plus an illustrated vocabulary card to help inspire ideas and support spelling. Perfect to place in a writing center or use for a whole-class writing project! Easy prep for you, maximum engagement for your students!
This set includes:
• 3 black & white postcard templates (One side is lined for writing, and includes a summer image, message, and postage “stamp.” The other side is blank so students can add their own illustration.)
• An illustrated vocabulary card (color and black & white versions included)
• Activity suggestions
• Write to a family member or friend. (Describe a fun summer activity!)
• Write to a favorite story character. (Invite Gerald & Piggie on a summer outing!)
• Have a postcard exchange. (Write and exchange postcards with a writing partner.)
• Celebrate the writing with a postcard party! (Roam the room from partner to partner “tea party style,” reading postcards to each other before moving on to repeat the activity with another partner.)
