Want to help your students avoid the summer slide without using reams of paper to copy large activity packets? Then this is the resource for you!

This resource is a 7 to 8 page comprehensive summer activity packet that is aligned to 5th Grade Common Core Standards. This is a "forever" resource, which means you will be able to buy it now and download the updated calendars I will post each year at no additional cost! Note: if you bought this calendar set last year, you can go to your "My Purchases" page to upload the 2016 version.

Students will use this resource to practice skills aligned with 5th grade standards, so it is appropriate for most students who are currently finishing 5th grade regardless of whether they will be retained in 5th grade next year or promoted to 6th grade. (The only exception would be students who are functioning more than a year below grade level - those students may benefit more from one of my Summer Calendar packs for lower grades - depending on their instructional level). The packet allows students to practice a wide variety of standards using nothing but the contents of the packet, a pack of index cards, a composition notebook, and occasional access to the internet.

Each activity packet contains the following:
~ Parent Letter - all you have to do is sign it!
~ Summer Reading Log
~ Two "Helpful Hints" pages with: Suggestions for websites, Directions for how to make some of the math activities,
Examples for how to make daily entries into their journals
Common literary terms and their definitions
Reading comprehension questions for fiction and non-fiction texts (roughly aligned to reading levels O through U)
~ Activity calendars for the end of May and all of June, July, and August with 65+ suggestions for ELA and math activities that are aligned to 5th grade Common Core Standards (see date ranges below)

I know different school systems use different dates for their summer break. To address this issue, I created 25 different sets of .pdf calendars to cover the date ranges below. All you have to do is pick the date range that most closely matches your district's summer break, then print!

The preview download includes full-page views of the June calendar, the summer reading log, the parent letter, and the "helpful hints" pages. It also includes a list of all the CCS standards that are covered by the calendars. Extra licenses are discounted to $1.50, so you can afford to share with your grade level :) If you have any questions, feel free to click on the "Product Q & A" tab and ask away!

Note: this is a very large .zip file, so it may take a while to download. You will need to extract the files after you download and save them onto your computer before you can open the .pdf files.
