First Day Tried & True Linky: Lesson Idea for the First Day!
When I first joined this amazing linky of First Day plans, I knew I wanted to share my favorite writing lesson for the first day. It gets students sharing and building relationships right from the start! It all centers around one of my favorite first day read alouds: How I Spent My Summer Vacation by Mark Teague
I have read this book every first day for the past four years, people. You know it has to be good if even Pinterest (which has exploded over the past 4 years) hasn’t yet shown me a lesson that I would use to replace this. It is definitely tried and true!Click here for my lesson plan.
The writing template I use for this activity is apart of my Back to School Essentials Pack.
Thanks to Chrissie at Undercover Classroom and Sarah at Education Electrification for hosting this great linky party! Be sure to check out other Tried & True activities as you plan your first day!
