Each grade level summer learning packet
Adorable Summer Cover:
Our summer learning packets come with a cute cover with summer graphics. You can slide it into their binder or staple it to the front of their packet. There is a spot for your kids names, so if you have multiple children, it’ll be easy to set them apart.
Simple Lesson Plans for the Activities:
Not an experienced teacher? No worries. We’ve been writing ready-to-go lessons that ANYONE can teach for over 5 years now. They are simple enough that anyone can follow them, but real learning is involved. Win-win!
Daily Math Review:
This quick review will go over grade-appropriate math content broken up into five days, so your child can keep their math skills fresh! Do one problem a day if you start at the beginning of the summer- or double up if you start later in the summer.
Weekly Math Facts Fluency Practice:
These summer learning packets include 15-20 problems that the students should be able to solve quickly. This helps them practice their fluency skills. There are 10 of these included in each packet!
Backwards Story Problem:
In a backward story problem, your kids are given an answer and need to come up with a problem that has the answer. Then, they will brainstorm who and what the problem is about, write the problem, and draw a picture. The backward story problem is broken up into five days.
Reading Lessons to use with ANY Book!
There are 5 lesson plans and graphic organizers for 5 reading comprehension strategies. You can switch strategies every 2 weeks, or mix and match however you would like. This lesson can be used over and over with different books each time!
This page contains some suggested questions you can ask your student to spark conversation about the book(s) you are reading with them so that students can continue their comprehension skills even while they are home.
