We still have 17 school days to go!
My students have exactly 2 months off for summer. I’ve already mentioned this, but I’m just blown away by the progress my students have been making recently. It seems like they are going through a huge growth spurt since spring break. I’m not sure what’s going on…but I like it!
So although I have a countdown for summer break to get my personal life back on track, it’s bittersweet to let these little guys go for the summer!
At my school, we offer homework summer packets by request (to save paper). Since I have a caseload of students, rather than a class, I go ahead and make a summer packet for every student. I run copies double-sided on colorful paper and add extra materials (flashcards, matching card games, puzzles, etc.). I present it as a “gift” to my students & they love it (or at least, they seem excited!)!
I have a Summer Slide Practice Printables set for students who performed mostly on grade level throughout first grade. This is great for summer practice to prepare for second grade. Students needing extra reinforcement of first grade skills may receive pages from my A Sentence a Day (practice with phonics reading and simple sentence editing!) and Number of the Day. Some students will receive a mix & match of both!
I’m also adding these “sweet treats”and sharing two FREE pages with you! Enjoy!
