I’ve been subbing at several local elementary schools and since testing is over, it seems everyone is writing about summer. 

Our last day of school isn’t until June 18 which is a crime against nature.  On Friday I cranked  some Jack Johnson which properly inspired some 3rd graders to brainstorm about what their senses experience in summer.

See:  bare feet, the view from the diving board, fireworks

Hear:  ice cream truck, buzzing, music, sizzling

Taste:  watermelon, salt water

Feel:   grass, hot sand, sweat, waves

Smell:  sunscreen, burgers, wet dogs

What would you add to the list?
