Hey friend! Want to prevent the summer slide? This bundle from Wild Child Designs has you covered. It consists of two separate challenges: A Reading Marathon Challenge & The Summer Writing Challenge. Both challenges are "print, bind & go" options to provide summer activities for students in grades 3-5. Plus, when you purchase this bundle, you get both challenges at a discount! Here's what's included:
Summer Marathon Reading Challenge:
Lace up those running shoes! Grab you Gatorade! It's time to read a marathon!
Students are super motivated by this program. Students self-select a reading goal. They can choose to read a 5k (3 books), a 10K (6 books), a half marathon (13 books), or a marathon (26 books) over the course of the summer. They complete thought-provoking responses/reflections at each of the above benchmark distances and send their teacher a postcard bragging about their success.
This program includes a 15 page student book in both color and grayscale, two pages of teacher talk notes, 4 colored and grayscale postcards for student use (one for each distance), and colored postcards for teacher response. I also includes four colored and four grayscale celebratory certificates for student awards when they return to school in fall.
This is a teacher-tested and kid-approved reading program!
On your mark, get set, GOOOOOOO!
The Summer Writing Challenge:
Do you want to avoid the summer slide? This product is for you! Reading and writing skills should develop hand in hand, and yet writing is often ignored in favor of reading stamina and support. This Summer Writing Challenge consists of 31 thought-provoking and creative writing prompts, as well as pages for free writing and story starter photographs. There are color or black and white options included.
Students set a weekly writing goal (in minutes). They use the journal to complete the challenge. Post cards for teacher encouragement, a writing graph log and parent letter is also included.
