This Summer Practice Packet includes six reading review lessons, a novel response packet for any novel, and ten writing review lessons.
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 packet, students read a novel of their choice, complete daily responses, and answer follow-up questions.
Students will need a novel, a magazine or newspaper, and internet access or another reference source to complete the packet.
Each lesson begins with a review of editing, grammar, and spelling, 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. An answer key is provided.
This is a simple, ready-to-go packet for students who need a little something to keep up their reading and writing skills over the summer months. Not too much work - just enough to stay in practice! It supports a number of the ELA standards for reading literature and informational text and for writing.
