What a GREAT gift for kids this summer! Simply download this 8 X 10 (it's free) and laminate it or put it into a frame. Add a dry erase marker and have kids cross off each summer activity as they do it. LOVE THIS. www.scribd.com/...
I think instead of making my own summer to do list I might just use this one. It really has some great options and a good variety.
Could create this for many purposes; the creator did it as a way to document plans. I was thinking of using it for beginning year, getting to know you, establishing class agreements. I love the use of color, symbols, words- what a beautiful artifact for a classroom.
