Summer Manifesto Freebie

I was following along with a Twitter chat recently when I came across this old blog post from Ali Edwards about creating a Summer Manifesto.  I loved the idea of putting together a list of all the things that you want to accomplish over the summer (what can I say, I'm a to-do list kind of girl)!  Here is my Summer Manifesto:

I also LOVE this Summer Manifesto written as a poem by Andrea at Hula Seventy.  As I read it I thought, this would make a great writing lesson if I was teaching summer school or year round school.  My wheels started turning even more and I thought, I could have my students write a School Year Manifesto as a back to school activity!  If you have any thoughts or ideas about this I would love to hear them!

Would you like to create your own summer manifesto?   I have a blank template for you below.  Just right click it, save as a jpeg, and add your own text boxes to it.

If you create one and post it on your blog or other social media account I'd love for you to share it below using the linky widget.  Please link directly to your post vs. your general blog link. If you link up, be sure to comment on at least 3 other blog posts!

If you are struggling to write your own Summer Manifesto, this post by Simple Scrapper might give you  a starting point. 


My friend Kelly from Digging Deep to Soar Beyond the Text asked me to make a version of this product for her to use with her students!

As you can see, they came out AMAZING!

I loved the idea so much, I decided to make a freebie for you to use as well! You can download it here.


  1. This is great! Thanks for the awesome template!

  2. Thanks for hosting this great summer link up!

  3. This is a great summer link up. I love the template and I love your idea of having students do a Back to School manifesto. Is there any chance that you would want to put the title on your adorable beach template? I have a beach theme so it would be perfect for school. Since your summer manifesto template is the perfect one for my class, I think I should stick to perfection and use it.

    1. How about "School Year Manifesto" or "5th Grade Manifesto" You could do one for each grade and post it on TpT. I'd buy it.

    2. Thanks Kelly. My email address is
