Summer School Happenings

WOW!  I can't believe some teaching friends are starting school very soon and I still have 2 weeks of summer school left.  I wanted to SHARE kind of our fun summer school day.  

CLICK HERE to view this schedule!
We used this resource to bring us together for day.
CLICK HERE to see this resource in Deanna Jump's TpT Shop.
CLICK HERE to read more about this book.
THE BEST BOOK EVER to help teach phonological awareness in the classroom. 
I would choose a worksheet each morning for the kiddos to complete as they entered the room each morning.
CLICK HERE to get your very own packet.

Each week we focused on a short vowel.  This was a great way to practice fluency with short vowel words!
CLICK HERE to get yours!
You will want the whole bundle!!!

Each day we would read a book from "Reading A to Z",
I loved that the students could take the books home and read it to their families. 

We also had "silent reading" time. The students worked hard on building stamina to impress our first grade teachers! 

Each week the students would get a new writing folder and take it home on Friday.  I tried to make each day a fun new way to practice our writing.  

CLICK HERE for Journal Prompts.  LOVE THEM! 

CLICK HERE to go to Whimsy Workshop Teaching shop.
 I love the writing variety this unit has for your students!

Tara West from Little Minds at Work.

and grab this unit for your classroom. 
CLICK HERE to get this unit from Create-Abilities. 
I use this any chance I can.  
The kiddos think it is so much fun! 

CLICK HERE to find these "voice & expression cards" in Cara Carroll's "Rock Your Fluency" unit.  We used these all summer long to review our kindergarten sight words.  

CLICK HERE because you will want to use this in your classroom.  Such a great resource for beginning readers and a great way to develop comprehension skills. 
This comprehension worksheet is from Rowdy in Room 300.
The students had fun looking for the sight words in our reading and then drawing a picture to match what we read together.
CLICK HERE to check out her unit and her TpT shop. 
Movement time for YouTube math videos.
Still one of THE BEST ways to learn! 

CLICK HERE to view our math activities. 

Most of the math activities/games that we used this summer were from Shari Sloane "1234 Kids Count Blog".
CLICK HERE  to check out her math centers and games.  So appropriate for kinder kids and FREE! 
Had to share one picture of "My Little Man"!
I took him to his first bull riding event this summer.
Now is wants to ride bulls when he grows up! 

HOPEFULLY some of these pictures inspire you to use these units in your classroom at any time of the year.  I know the kiddos Enjoy your summer and what is left of it!
