That Was Summer . . .

Today Ruma Rima was inspired by Sheena Cameron and the The Writing Book - Ms Brown's go to person, for inspirational lesson ideas!

Our focus for reading integrated with our writing - activating prior knowledge.  In this case, experiences over summer we could all relate it . . . can you remember your summer through the five senses used?

Remember when we paddled on our surfboards to Picnic Bay through shimmering salty water, running against our feet.
Remember jumping off the wharf and feeling the current pulling you viciously.
That was summer.

Remember seeing the sign that says . . . Welcome to Mangawhai.
Remember opening your window and smelling the fresh salty air.
That was summer.

Remember getting our tent blown over and the flapping tent all night.
Remember slapping into the water from flipping out of the sea biscuit and then your family laughing.
That was summer.
