Summer Smart is a ten week summer review of first grade skills -reading, math, language arts and sight words.
It is organized into ten fun weekly themes:
o Surf’s Up
o Sea Smart
o Camp Smarty Pants
o Learning is a Picnic
o Learning is a Treasure
o Racing through Summer
o Out of this World
o Fairy Tale Fun

Each week is structured by a checklist of assignments that the student has to do each day and check off.
Every day the student must read a book for 15 - 20 minutes and do a reading log activity about what they read. There is also a daily math practice page. The math pages are basic computation – addition and subtraction facts, money, time, place value and fractions. The 4th daily activity varies. It includes sight words, grammar, language arts, math word problems, writing, word searches or a learning game. Learning games include:
