This package includes two summer practice packets - the reading packet, and the writing, grammar, and spelling packet
- for students to review their reading comprehension and written language skills over the summer vacation.
The reading packet contains ten pages of practice. It includes six one-page reading review lessons and a four page novel response assignment. Each of the six one-page lessons begins with a vocabulary warm-up. For the lessons, students use a magazine, newspaper, or other reference source to complete various reading assignments such as reading an article and completing a chart, searching for specific items to cut and paste, and researching to create an informational poster. For the novel response, students read a novel of their choice and complete daily responses and follow-up questions. Students will need a novel, a magazine or newspaper, and internet access or another reference source to complete this packet.
The writing, grammar, and spelling packet contains ten one-page lessons. Each lesson begins with a review of editing, grammar, and spelling and is followed by a short writing exercise. The writing exercises include journal writing, editing and revising. Students only need paper, pencils, and a dictionary to complete these lessons.
This package of two simple, ready-to-go packets for students who need a little something to stay in practice over the summer supports a number of the ELA standards for reading literature, reading informational text, and writing.
