Summer Writing | Summer Review | Summer Activities | End of the Year
Avoid the summer slide with meaningful reading and writing activities. This freebie is part of my complete Summer Review Packet, which contains eight weeks’ worth of reading, writing, and maker materials to keep students’ skills sharp over the summer.
Included in this resource are a week’s worth of summer writing activities that are engaging and encourage students to think! NO PREP for you! Simply copy and send home with students at the end of the year. The activities also work well as an engaging filler during those last hectic days of the year.
About this resource, teachers have said:
“These writing prompts are fun, interconnected, and meaningful. Although the scenarios are "pretend" there is real-life problem solving involved here. I have to say, these are so inviting that even *I* want to write them!”
“Fabulous! What a great idea for the summer and enticing enough for reluctant readers and writers! Thank you!”
“You have picked a theme that kids will love to tackle, and given students 5 great interconnected lessons to work on. This is going to be an excellent summer project for my students. Thanks so much for sharing.”
This free resource contains an example writing week. Each day of writing includes a short reading, graphic organizer for collecting ideas, and space for writing a themed piece. Two prompts include places for drawing visuals to go along with students’ writing.
