Family Fun Friday–Summer Vacation

On this first Friday of summer vacation, I only have a short activity suggestion for your family.
Keep a summer vacation journal.  This can easily be done with a spiral notebook or a fancier scrapbook.  You can even have your child make a scrapbook—we made many books in class this year, so he will have an idea of how to put a book together with paper you already have at home.
Each evening or every few days, sit down together and review the things you have done.  Have each child write a sentence or two and illustrate their favorite activity.
If you use your camera, make sure to print photos and add them to your book.
I’d love to see your journals when you return to school in the fall.  I may even have some summer stories of my own to share with you!
Have fun together,
