Product Description

This end of year countdown will save your sanity! When all of your text books and supplies are put away, this survival kit contains EVERYTHING you need to survive the last two weeks of school. Each day includes lesson plans, activities, and printables for reading, writing, math, science, art, and additional fun activities that will be sure to fill the entire day.

We combined the perfect amount of educational activities and projects that will keep students engaged and excited to come to school until that last bell rings for summer break.

***Updated May 2019

***Kits also available for grades 1-2 and grades 3-4.***

To prepare for the 10 Days Survival Kit you will need some type of container to store each day’s materials.  We purchased 10 gift boxes from Amazon and glued the printable suitcase label on each box. You can also use shirt boxes, gift bags, or plastic bins.

The read-aloud books are not included.  Check out your local and school libraries. These books are just suggestions.  You can also choose your own books that go along with the daily theme.
