Keep your students refreshed over a break! Over spring break and the Christmas holiday I send a "packet" home to be complete. The packet consists of review items so they continue to get a little practice of the break! If my students turn in the packet completed the first day back they get a prize. This is a great way to keep them in the routine of math and word work. Each day they a math, word work and reading section to complete. Feel free to modify this in anyway to fit your students. Believe me, it has been worth it to send the packets home and have my students "hit the ground running" coming back from break.
