This is an inference activity to be used at the beginning of the school year to talk about what you and your students did over the summer.
-To introduce the activity, you will give the 1st page to each student. You will show them 3 items that relate to one thing you (the teacher) did over the summer. (example: shells, a pic of my husband, and a Mexican blanket) They will draw a pic of each item and label each item. Then they will try to infer what you did over the summer and write it in the blank. You will then tell them what you actually did (exa. I went to the beach in Mexico with my husband.) and they will write that in the blank at the bottom.
-You will then have students bring in 1 item (on a given day: see parent note). The class will look at the item and try to infer what that student did over the summer. The student who brought the item will fill out the foldable "Can you infer what I did?" paper. They will draw a picture of what they brought and label it. They will fold that paper in half with the picture on the outside and on the inside they can write a sentence telling what they did that summer that relates to the item they brought. (this can either go in their reader's notebook or on a bulletin board.)
