What is PrimarySummer?
Do you have a view spare moments? Watch this detailed explanation video preview HERE
Hi there and thanks so much viewing my PrimarySummer packet! This is a 4 week packet that is designed with a supplemental summer school program in mind or a 4 week closer to your school year. This program is created for incoming kindergarten students up to incoming second grade students. Why such a large range you ask? The packet has gone to great lengths to offer differentiation at all ends! Nearly every task is offered in a differentiated format. There will pages that apply to your students and possibly pages that do not apply, no worries because duplicate pages are not counted in the total number of packet pages.
What does a week of PrimarySummer look like? PrimarySummer is a supplemental summer program that takes students on a fun and exciting adventure. The students will pack their bags and set sail for their 4 weeks of destinations. At each of the four stops, they will be introduced to a nonfiction close read text. These nonfiction NatGeo texts are separate of the packet and will need purchased. (Lizards by Laura Marsh, Cheetahs by Laura Marsh, Sea Turtles by Laura Marsh and Bears by Elizabeth Carney) There are written close read passages included for the older students to read and annotate independently. The younger students will have the close read text read to them as they listen and respond to the text in the close read model: cold read, vocabulary, text-dependent questions, paired text and culminating activity. Along with the close read, the teacher will have access to multiple student close read response sheets, vocabulary cards, poems, writing lesson plans, writing booklets, science experiments, weekly crafts, literacy centers, math centers, travel suitcase craft and journal keepsake and more.

What else can you tell me about this packet?
I would like to sum up again that this packet is for prekinders through incoming second grade students! The major focus of this unit is the three close read themes/vacation destinations that the students will adventure to each week! You will need to purchase the Nat G nonfiction books on the side! If you are wanting to teach this unit right away and don't the books on hand but you do have an interactive whiteboard, you can choose to buy a e book/Kindle version from Amazon! The Kindle versions will load onto a desktop app and display nicely! For example, here
is the link to the Sea Turtles book!
I would also like to state again that you will see some "repeat pages". That simply means that I have offered a sheet in a couple of different ways to reach the largest range of students! Again, I have not priced the packet for all of those pages so you aren't charged for papers you won't use! There are included literacy and math centers! There is one literacy and one math center for prek and the remaining literacy and math centers are for more K going into first and first going into second!
