Dear Summer Program Leaders and Moms on the Go,
Are you running a summer program, tutoring, or just traveling with a young child this summer? This packet is perfect for your needs. It can all be run off without the use of a color printer, allowing you to hit the road at full speed while still preventing the dreaded "summer slide". All students need to review the skills acquired during the school year so they will be ready to take on first grade.
This packet is user friendly for teachers, summer school instructors, and parents. It reflects many of the Common Core standards that have been introduced in kindergarten with a strong focus on Foundational Skills.
First grade teachers and intervention teachers will find this to be a great tool to use at the opening of the school year too. It will help you determine the strengths and needs of individual students as you work to differentiate according to their needs.
Parents will get a sense of the Common Core standards and what they might look like in a classroom. This packet will help them to support the learning of their kindergarten student to ensure success in school.
There are many engaging, interesting activities that have been carefully designed to make learning fun. This is another "pack and go" product that has been created in a similar fashion to Camp Common Core. A mathematics packet will be added soon.
