If you are working this summer, you may want to pick up a copy of "The Very Lonely Firefly" and read it to the kids.
It's all about lights, a repetitive line, feelings of loneliness, fireworks, and a surprise at the end. Your students will love it! It fits in beautifully with the fireworks theme at this time of year.
I whipped up some free visuals to go with it. These are made with Smarty Symbols. You may download this set for use with this book, but do not use for other purposes. The symbols are copyrighted.
