For summer review, I have the following choices available in my store. Here is what is included in each resource:
Summer Stay in Practice Packet – Reading
The Reading Packet contains ten pages of practice. It includes:
- six one-page reading review lessons – Each of the six one-page lessons begins with a vocabulary warm-up. For the lessons, students use a magazine, newspaper, or other reference source to complete various reading assignments such as reading an article and completing a chart, searching for specific items to cut and paste, and researching to create an informational poster.
- A four-page novel response assignment – For the novel response, students read a novel of their choice and complete daily responses and follow-up questions. Students will need a novel, a magazine or newspaper, and internet access or another reference source to complete this packet.
Summer Stay in Practice Package – Writing, Grammar, and Spelling
The Writing Packet contains ten one-page lessons.
- Each lesson begins with a review of editing, grammar, and spelling and is followed by a short writing exercise. The writing exercises include journal writing, editing and revising. Students only need paper, pencils, and a dictionary to complete these lessons.
Summer Practice Task Cards
The Summer Task Card Set contains thirty large, half-page task cards for end-of-year or summertime review of reading, writing, and vocabulary skills. There are five cards on each of six summer topics: 1. At the Beach, 2. Life on the Pond, 3. Low-Tech Fun, 4. The Ball Game, 5. Picnic Time, and 6. Vacation. They would work well either as a take-home set or for a class activity.
Each group of five cards includes each of the following:
- Reading Skills
- Writing Practice
- Fun Puzzles
- Follow-up Activity
If you are looking for review work to send home with those students who need a little something to practice with during the summer months, check out the preview files to see if one of these might be what you are looking for.
