This is a bundle of three of my summer packets. It includes summer packets for incoming kindergartners, first graders, and second graders.
Incoming Kindergarten Packet:
This is a collection of summertime worksheets and activities designed for students who will be entering kindergarten in the fall. I taught kindergarten for 12 years and this is the packet I used for my summer school program for incoming kinders. I have found it very helpful for students who may need a little extra support before officially beginning kindergarten and also a great way to reinforce skills for all students who are beginning their academic journey.
This packet targets the skills students need to be successful in kindergarten and also introduces some of the concepts that will be learned during the year.
Included in this packet:
*Practice Your Name Sheets
*Letter Guides (Zaner-Bloswer and Handwriting Without Tears)
*Lowercase Letters (cut and glue in abc order on ABC board)
*Uppercase Letters (cut and glue in abc order on ABC board)
*Letter Activities: Two worksheets are included for each letter. On the first sheet, students must identify and color the pictures that begin with the given letter. On the second sheet students practice writing the letter, draw a picture that begins with the letter, identify and circle the letter, and fill in the missing letter for words containing the given letter. Worksheets are formated for both Zaner-Bloser and Handwriting Without Tears handwriting programs.
*Phonemic Awareness Practice: Students color the pictures that begin with the same sounds.
