Instructional Ideas

  • As a class, brainstorm rules for summer and discuss their importance to staying safe
  • Design posters of written rules in picture form to display around the classroom 
  • Make copies of the the class' rules, bind them together, and distribute the final product to everyone so they can reference the rules over the summer     
Classroom Considerations

  • Remind writers that rules should not be specific to any one person; so not to put unsuspected peers on the spot
Pros

  • This activity encourages reflection on one's actions and the safety rules that should be taken seriously  
  • Writing and end-of-year fun is combined with a summer themed prompt 
Cons

  • Lines are spaced closely together which may cause difficulty for those with large print
