Fun Summer Practice!

Summer is quickly approaching and we are all excited! But it is nerve-racking to send your sweet little kinders off for summer and wonder if they'll forget everything over those short long few months! Why not send them off with a little summer practice?!

I printed off the pages and made them into a little packet. I will send these home over the summer to make sure my sweet littles are Ready Made for First Grade!!

Here's a little sampling of what's inside the packets.
This pack is loaded with many skills that your soon-to-be firsties can practice over the summer so that they are Ready Made for First Grade!

It includes:
A summer journal with several writing prompts!
Daily practice pages aligned with common core standards!
Fun math practice
Summer reading list and a fun reading incentive!
Some graphic organizers for reading response:

and lots of math fluency practice!
My friend Lyndsey and I worked really hard on this pack together to give our kiddos the most for the summer! You can check out her soon to be second graders version {here}!

I also put together a little packet to give to my incoming Kinders.
It's full of hands-on and engaging activities for your littles to complete the summer before entering kindergarten {or for the first few weeks of school if you aren't able to give summer packets before kinder!}

This pack covers everything from letter names and sounds, number identification and one-to-one correspondence, basic shapes, and colors! It also incorporates a lot of cutting, coloring and gluing to work those fine motor muscles! {even my fine motor muscles got tired coloring these pages! ha!}

Here's a look at what's included!

A mini alphabet booklet for each letter of the alphabet! Each book has a cover page and 3 corresponding pictures. Have your children cut the pages on the lines and help them assemble the book together. Then the kiddos can trace the upper and lower case letters, color the pictures and "read" each page.
There are also some fun alphabet mats. These are great for hands-on learning. You can have your children decorate each letter with glitter, cheerios, beads, etc! Help them squeeze white glue on each letter to work those muscles!

Along with some more letter tracing pages, there is also a line tracing page. This really helps the students get ready to write. You can stick them in a clear sheet protector and have your kiddo use a dry-erase marker to trace the lines multiple times.
There's also some fun color by number activities! Students identify the numbers in the picture and color them the correct color.
Here's what the counting practice looks like.
Your kiddos can also practice tracing and coloring shapes.
There is also a little book of colors. Each page has 3 pictures that represent each color.
I've also included a fun bingo page and reward coupons for the important skills that don't require paper/pencil. Have your students complete one or more a day and place a bingo chip on each square. This is such a motivating way to keep your littles learning over the summer!

You can find this pack in my TpT store!

Here's to a fun, yet meaningful summer!
