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.
The Easel Activity is ready to use with answer boxes and directions already in place for student use.
