Want to make the last few weeks of school “sizzle”? Here are some fun and educational activities for you to use to keep your students engaged during their final days in school. These activities will work great for math and reading centers! They will have so much fun they won’t even know they are still learning!!!
***Coloring Puzzles – 2 puzzles ( Add/sub & Money) – color the picture, cut it up in strips, figure out the math problems and glue them down in order from the smallest to biggest number/amount. When you glue them down correctly, your picture comes to life! They will have fun while practicing math too!
***Making Words – Make words out of the letters “Summer Vacation”. Cut out each letter, manipulate them to make new words and record the words you make.
***Circle Maps – 3 circle maps (summer, ice cream, and a blank one). Use these circle maps to find describing words for each topic. Students can then write a story on the topic and use all their wonderfully descriptive words!
***Jumble Words– Unscramble the letters to make words, use the letters in each circle to answer the mystery question at the end.
***Race to the Castle Game (Math & Reading) – The first one to the sand castle wins! Simply answer a math or reading problem correctly, roll the dice and move that many spaces. Just watch out for the beach balls!! There are 36 math and reading review cards and one blank set of cards for you to program for your specific review. Use this game over and over again practicing different skills.
***Friendly Letter – Use this friendly letter sheet to write letters to friends, family and future students in your classroom.
***Word Search– Have students read and find summer themed words in this word search.
