Here is a packet of summer language calendars that you can give parents for homework. There is a calendar for June, July and August. Each day has its own language activity. Most of the activities just take a few minutes and are designed to encourage overall language development. The activities are for younger kids- I created these calendars with preschoolers in mind, but I think they could easily be used with Kindergartners and possibly first graders as well. I chose a theme for each week and then chose activities and discussion questions to go along with the theme. I also included a sample letter to parents explaining the homework. You could ask parents to send the calendars back to you when school starts and give a prize to the children if they completed a certain number of activities each week.
There are two different versions of these calendars for you to choose from. The first version has the same prompts as my 2013 summer language calendars. The second version has all new themes and prompts.
The calendars are Microsoft Word templates and the graphics are from www.mycutegraphics.com
