This summer fun collection (end of school year) is geared towards putting together learning activities to help you at the end of the school year.
It’s hard to believe how quickly the school years fly by. Those last few days of class you have a room filled with anxious students who can be difficult to keep engaged at end of school year. We have created a collection of activities to help you in those final days. Use these as centers to keep your kids moving from place to place.
Unlike our newer posts, the materials provided are individual downloads. You will need to click on each bold title below to download the resources.
Fluency Sentences A set of 12 sentence cards with an emphasis on the first 100 Fry words. Print in color and laminate for students to practice at a literacy center. Or, send home over the summer for extra reading practice.
Summer Scrambled Sentences You will find recording pages to go with this activity below.
Recording Sheet w/ Pictures (Students unscramble and illustrate two sentences.)
Summer Bucket List Explain to students that a bucket list is a list of the things you hope to someday do. Give each student a Summer Bucket List page. Have them put one thing they want to do in each frame.
Bookmarks Just something fun for your students. And… they will make a very inexpensive gift.
Splash Into Summer Bucket We LOVE the idea of putting together a little end of the year gift for our students. We hit the dollar spot to come up with some ideas. We began with a beach bucket to hold the items we purchased. We then added a small notebook, markers, mechanical pencils and erasers. (The mechanical pencils seemed like a good choice because not all students will have a pencil sharpener at home.) Our hope is that the writing supplies will encourage students to keep writing over the summer. We also added a beach ball. We thought it would be fun to have students use Sharpies and sign beach balls on the last day for a fun memory of the school year. Bubbles were added for something fun. We realize these might get pricey so if you have families willing and able to help out maybe ask for them to contribute items to the buckets. Maybe you could also print and laminate a Fry word game or math game for each student. Do you have other ideas to include? We would love to hear what you come up with!
