One of the most popular free downloads is our summer bucket printable that is both a math and creative writing activity… Plus, it’s a craftivity too. This year I used it to end the year in third grade. The third graders loved making the glyph and then writing their bucket lists. I added an extra page so that they could write about how they would imagine their summer to be. I created a rough draft form. I also created a center sheet in case you wanted to post these and have the students use them for an activity! You can click here for a preview of what is in the set… If you wish to have the set, click here!
I love the way they turned out. They all went home with the kids on the last day of school and I bet many of them will be kept in a special place to enjoy in years to come. Here is what you will find in the new set…
