Background Knowledge/ Summer

The Night Before Summer Vacation - Natasha Wing, Julie Durrell

We can all relate to the night before going on a trip. It doesn't have to be a long, planned trip but just a simple trip to somewhere. Let's all think about the excitement, the worrying about packing, the worrying about the trip in general. We will discuss this background knowledge and what the word trip means to us as individuals. Using a journal we can jot down our first thoughts when we hear the word trip. Then, elaborate on our feelings. Let's discuss what we love to do during the summer. So many options with this book! Targeted audience would be 2nd grade!
