Looking Back on Summer

Last spring I found this fun idea on Pinterest.  The kids draw pictures of what they see themselves doing during summer break in sunglasses.

I thought I would change it a little to make it a back to school project instead of a school's out project.
The tag line to go with the activity is "We're looking back on summer, this is what we see."

Have the students draw pictures of what they did over summer break in their glasses.  I'm going to have my students share their glasses with us when they are finished so that we can get to know each other a little better!

Here is a free download of the glasses if you are interested!


  1. Thanks for sharing! That's what it's all about! We're all in this together for a brighter future! When I see these glasses, it makes me think of that slogan that went around back in the 80's, "My future's so bright, I have to wear shades!"

  2. What a marvelous idea! I just realized that I have 2 1/2 weeks left before it is time to return back to school and this is just a perfect way to begin our sharing session.

  3. This is so great. I just picked up the book "Back To School, Splat!" and it's all about the fun things that Splat did over the summer. What a great activity to go with the story! (It's $3.99 at Target if anyone else is interested.) I realize I'm responding a year after your post - came here from The First Grade Parade! :-)

    1. Thanks for commenting! I will have to look for that book : )

  4. Thanks for sharing. Will try this out.

  5. Do u have extra ideas for back to school? ?

  6. While purchasing sunglasses online, it is important to read the product features carefully and opt for a product that provides 100% UV light protection which protects the eye from macular degeneration cataracts and cancer.
