Summer Resources

My district has another month of school.  Here's a fun way to think about Summer with these fun resources:

This is a resource designed to assist students in writing their own Summer poems. You will find helpful vocabulary associated with summer terminology, templates for writing poetry, some samples to help students get started and task cards to add to your poetry station. Summer templates include the following poetry forms: ABC Poem, Acrostic, Cinquain, Concrete, Couplet, Diamante, Free Verse, Haiku and Quatrain Poetry. A student-friendly rubric is also included. 

This package includes summer letter writing paper and lined paper for emergent and established writers. Art work created includes an ant, sun, ice cream cone, fish, kite, pail & shovel. Bonus gift tags included.

Silly sentences have always been a fun way to explore sentence building and recognizing parts of speech. Students in grades 3 through 6 will have the opportunity to use subject, verb and complement cards to build and simplify silly sentences. Challenging verb cards are included with this unit as well as nouns associated with the Summer theme, a blank sentence building template, display and label cards and a synonym chart. This is a perfect activity to use in your Word Work Stations or as an extra project for early finishers. 

This Math Stations pack includes 5 games with a summer theme. Students from grades 3 to 6 will practice their addition, multiplication and place value facts. A description of each game is listed below:

1) SUMS & DOUBLE SCOOPS: Students will generate sums and then double them. The student who covers three answers in a row is declared the winner.2) SUMS THEN DOUBLE + 1: Students will generate sums, double them and then add 1. This game is in a bump game format.3) RACE TO THE SUN: Numbers will be added and then multiplied by 10. The first person to reach the sun is declared the winner.4) RACE TO THE FISHBOWL: Using a game board format, students will generate products based on cubes or cards numbered 1 through 10. How a student moves on the board depends on his or her product.5) ODD & EVEN PLACE VALUE RACE: This game is played using place value from 0 to 99. Players move on the game board depending on whether or not the number generated is odd or even. A variation may be played by dividing the number by 2.

Students will be prompted to tell or write story with a summer theme. This unit includes a story prompt sheet, graphic organizers, word lists (summer & transition words), rubric and specialty writing paper with full and half lined pages.
