Keeping Skills Strong All Summer Long
To help my students maintain their skills over summer when school is not in session, I present each one with a fun summer activity pack. The pack includes games, a journal for daily journal writing and a writing folder that includes a topic list as well as reminder of the simple mechanics rules we learned, such as capitalization, etc. I also include lots of activities to help them practice the concepts we learned in kindergarten as well as a summer calendar on which I’ve jotted a daily activity my children can do to keep skills strong all summer long.
