Summer Smart is a ten week summer review of second grade reading, math, language arts and science skills.
It is organized into ten fun weekly themes:
o Surfin’ into Summer
o Under the Sea
o Summer Camp
o It’s a Picnic
o Ahoy! Let’s Go!
o Start your Engines
o Spaced Out
o Once Upon a Time
o On Safari
Each week is structured by a checklist of assignments that the student has to do each day and check off.
Every day the student must read a book for 20-30 minutes and do a reading log activity about what they read. There is also a daily math practice page. The math pages are basic computation – mostly addition and subtraction with regrouping and multiplication facts. The 4th daily activity varies. It includes science, grammar, language arts, math word problems, writing, word searches or a learning game. Learning games include:
- Under the Sea Contraction Game
- Pizza Fraction Bingo
- Let's Race to 1,000
- Fairy Tale Cause and Effect
- Dinosaur Addition/Subtraction Battle
Also included are 2 awards and a “Summer Smart Chart” that can be used for motivation.
This can be used to send home with students who need extra practice over the summer so that they will be ready for school in the fall. It can be printed weekly or all at once and put into a notebook. It is 207 pages so I will probably just send the file electronically to parents who have access to a computer and printer. (or you can just send them the link). The activities could also be used for tutoring or summer school.
Try out week one, which is free in the preview, and see if it works for you. Happy Summer!!!
