This packet is meant to help students continue practicing major first grade concepts over the summer so that they avoid the "summer slide" and stay fresh and ready for second grade! It has been carefully designed to match the A Beka curriculum. There are even some Christian concepts and truths in some of the practice!
The packet is set up for students to complete three worksheets a week for 12 weeks of summer - 36 pages in all. Each week is labeled 1-12 and the three worksheets for that week are labeled a, b and c. For example, week 1 includes worksheets 1a, 1b, and 1c. You can, however, do the work pages in any order or at any time, if needed. There is also a full answer key included in the back to help parents with special sounds or anything else! A sample of week 1 is shown in the preview.
Students will practice special sounds, prefixes and suffixes, alphabetical order, phonics rules, reading skills, and reading comprehension. Students will also practice addition and subtraction (single digit, two digit and carrying the 1), number sense, place value, counting coins, telling time to the 5 minutes, measurement, greater than and less than, and reading temperatures. Lastly, students will also get practice with handwriting and story writing/prompt response. They will be more than ready to start second grade with confidence and mastery of their first grade curriculum!
