Summer is right around the corner, and I know that is hard to believe. So ... keep your students busy learning and having fun! I like to give my students activities they can do with their parents at home to keep their love of learning going. The parents are always so grateful when I see them in the fall. For students (they need an extra incentive sometimes)... they receive a prize from my special prize box if they show me they worked on this summer packet.
So here you go... Here is a peek at what I will be sending them home with in a couple of weeks!
First, I like to give them some links to work on the computer or ipad.
This is my students favorite web site abcya.com - There is so much to do in math and language arts - They do feel like they are playing, it might as well be educational - right?
Here is the link....
Of course, my favorite videos are Mr. Harry's Kindergarten on you tube! The kinder kiddos love him too!This is their all time favorite!
Then I make sure they have some other academic activities for the next 3 months. Well, guess what you don't need to go any further...
I have also teamed up with Educents with some instant downloads for you! It includes printables, centers, games, science investigations, close reads, and much more! It's a mixture of reading, math, and science to keep the kids working hard through the summer and to get them ready for first grade!
My products included will surely be loved by your students! K-1 Function Machines is in this packet and is a $3.00 value. It is perfect for your students to review math operations. I just finished showing my kinders this and they loved the robots. A fun activity to introduce
addition and subtraction problems are included and also blank sheets to create your own algebraic thinking!
This packet includes:
*I can statement
*Addition - identifying input, output and rule
*Subtraction - identifying input, output and rule
*Introduction to Function Machine
*Independent student worksheets to complete input, output and rule for addition and subtraction
*Blank worksheets to easily write your own problems
Here are a few of my students working on these worksheets. I put them in sleeves and give them expo markers and they love it!
This can be used whole group, math centers, homeschooling, homework, early finishers.
It can also be used as an addition to calendar time or a part of a SUMMER packet. Your students will learn and enjoy at the same time.
