To kick off the 2017-2018 school year, students in Mary Prisco’s third-grade class at Deauville Gardens West Elementary School spent the first day of school engaged in a literacy activity. The class read “How I Spent My Summer Vacation” by Mark Teague, a story about a boy who lets his imagination run wild. The class then wrote either a realistic story or a fantasy about their summer. When they were finished, they got to share their summer vacation stories with a partner. Partners could guess if the story was reality or fantasy.
