Every-Day Edit: Back to School
Students in grades 3-6 correct errors in this passage about back-to-school time.
In this lesson, students use sequence maps to create personal narratives about their summer vacation.
Instead of having students write about what they did during summer vacation, you might have them write a thank-you letter to the person who was responsible for caring for them during the summer. That person might be a parent, a neighbor or camp counselor. (This activity comes from this larger list of icebreakers.)
