Summer Themed Language Arts and Math Activities


Hi blog friends!

If you haven't already noticed, I am SUPER excited for summer!! So when I got these adorable picnic graphics for Lettering Delights I just had to make them into some activities.

My first activity is a short u word family sort. Cut out the picnic baskets and picnic food and have your students sort the words into the appropriate basket. There is also a recording sheet for the students to write all of the words and to take home. {When I showed my 24 year old sister this game she asked me to print it out already so she could play...lol!}

My reading group is still only focusing on CVC words, but I created some harder chunks for students who need a little more of a challenge.

Cute little clipart boy from Mrs. Walsky {she makes her own clipart and then shares it with us for free! how cool is that!?}

My second creation is a Subtraction Activity. We are just starting to stick our toes in the water with subtraction; it is such a confusing concept after practicing addition all year! For this activity, have students choose one picnic basket card and one subtraction card. The picnic basket card is their starting number and the subtraction card tells them how many ants they need to cover up {or take-away}. The number of ants left on their picnic basket is how many are left over! There is also a recording sheet for this activity.

  2. This is so cute. I love it. You can only teach subtraction so many ways right?! Thanks for having me check this out. We are in school for 8 more weeks! I can't believe you are closing shop so soon.
