This resource includes documents and lessons that will encourage students and parents to keep practicing and learning over the summer. The primary resource is the PowerPoint I used to introduce and discuss summer slide with students. The PowerPoint includes two classroom activities in which students are asked to show comprehension and application of their learning.
In addition to the presentation and classroom activities, there are links to 6 documents I sent home with students at the end of the year. These resources include a parent info letter, cover page for a student homework packet, and summer reading log. There are also sample documents of location-specific calendars of free and fun things to do over the summer.
