Ah, summer. The media claims that all kids apparently lose everything they’ve learned from the school year and all their brains go down the “summer slide”. Not so, if parents and summer school teachers make it fun! Whenever possible, Karen and I like to make activities that incorporate the visual…hence the whole mission of our blog. CREATIVE.
Teaching kids to incorporate the “five senses” in writing is always a struggle, even in the upper grades. Believe you me, I have graded many a junior high paper over the years. It’s not pretty, my friends. Descriptive language for most kids is a colossal struggle, so practice makes perfect, right?
Sure, we could just fill out a worksheet, but what about a five senses bunting? The kids could add to it after summer events, and build their 5 senses bunting with the sights, sounds, smells, sensations, and tastes of summer!
Best of all…this is free! Because we love you. Just download the file at the end.
For those who are very right brained, you could even collage with a few photos or images from magazines or the internet. For my son with autism, I plan to redo this with his PECS cards. Is your child an artist? Have them draw and label their words and phrases!

As with all of our freebies, this is personal/classroom use only.
