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 10 page comprehensive summer activity packet that is aligned to Kindergarten Common Core Standards. It is a "forever" resource, which means you get to download all updated calendars in years to come for no additional charge!
Note: if you bought this calendar set last year, you can go to your "My Purchases" page to upload the 2016 version.
This packet is appropriate for students who are currently finishing Kindergarten regardless of whether they will be retained in Kindergarten next year or promoted to 1st grade. The packet allows students to practice a wide variety of standards using nothing but the contents of the packet, a pack of index cards, and a composition notebook. A few of the activities reference websites, but most activities don't require internet access to complete.
Each activity packet contains the following:
~ Parent Letter - all you have to do is sign it!
~ Summer Reading Log
~ "Helpful Hints" page that includes suggestions for websites, comprehension questions (roughly aligned to reading levels A-F), and examples for how to make daily entries into their journals
~ Capital & Lowercase letter cards
~ Number cards 1-20
~ 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 Kindergarten Common Core Standards (see date ranges below)
I know different school systems use different dates for their summer break (especially this year since many of our districts experienced an unusual amount of inclement weather). To address this issue, I created 20 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!

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.
