  1. I've actually volunteered my services on Craigslist to help tutor children that are especially at-risk for the summer slide... I'm hoping that at least one family takes me up on that offer!

  2. My students are sent home with a list of words that they will need to know for 1st grade. They also get a book to keep them reading over the summer.

  3. I always put together a take home bag for my kiddos at the end of the year. I fill it with sight word rings, math flashcards, worksheets, and a couple of new books. Whatever I can do to get more learning in over the summer!

  4. I usually send a list of books to read and websites for them to use and writing topics for a journal. Our break is only a 3 week break so our kids really do not have much of a summer break (year round school).

  5. Thanks for the frames! Love them!

    I've created reading, writing, and math task cards for my kiddos to practice skills with over the summer. I also send home a book and gift bag with goodies in it.

    I've been asked to tutor one of my kiddos over the summer so I plan on using these task cards and other materials to help him stay on track.

  7. I love following your blog. One thing I do to keep my students learning is to ave a post card contest. I give my address and encourage my students to write to me during the summer. I give prizes for the coolest, most, farthest and first postcards. It is good the the kiddos and makes checking the mail fun for me.

  8. I help to tutor students over the summer as well as send home a packet of information for them that they can work together with their parents, grandparents, guardians. This packet includes things like books to read, worksheets to do, craftivities to complete etc. I have tried as best as I can to tender the packs to the needs of the student and also to their likes and interests, which in turns helps to motivate them even more to continue learning over the summer.

  9. I bought spiral notebooks at the dollar store for my students. During the last week of school, the kids got to decorate the notebooks. We glued in a list of writing ideas inside the front cover. The kids took the notebooks home and could write in them all summer (kind of like writer's workshop for summer!).

    Tricia, I love your post card idea!

  10. I just graduated today and have a job in Phoenix next year so I'll be thinking of lesson ideas and activities to help my new kiddos!

  11. We are lucky in Australia that the kids only get 6 weeks off in summer (over Christmas), so there is a lot less worry about kids loosing ground.
    I do send home a fun booklet with lots of puzzles and journal pages to keep them practicing their skills.

  12. I am sending home a summer work packet to help keep kids active learning. I've tried to include as many activities as possible so the kids don't spend the summer dreading work. I try to disguise it as fun.

  13. I love your blog and your graphic designs! I give each of my students a brand new book as an end of the year gift. I also send home a book mark with reading strategies. For my 5 and 6 year old sons , I have created sight word and writing packets and games. They also participate in the summer reading program at our local library.

  14. I send home leveled books for my children to read during the summer, as well as a packet of review materials, especially focusing on math.

  16. I'm working with my own kiddos for a change. My son will be in kindergarden and we are still working on spelling his whole name and site word recognition. My daughter is bored all year with all the kill and drill, so I have some extension projects planned for her to keep up with her creativity.

  17. My summer plans revolve around my own children, 8 and 10. With my 8 year old son, I will be reading books together and helping him continue to practice the cursive writing he learned this year. With my 10 year old daughter, who is going into middle school, I will be teaching her how to type and how to write in cursive (she skipped in school so she missed the cursive year). She will also be doing some advance math preparation with her dad (a middle school math teacher). Isn't that convenient?!

    For teaching typing, I have purchase "Keyboard Classroom". I think the keyboard finger guides are really going to help her learn quickly.

  27. I am a teacher in Harrison County (West Virginia). Our Board of Education distrubutes a list of tutors in the county and my name is on the list. I am one of the most popular "tutors" so I am called all the time. I have a big heart, so I do not charge for my services. I am just glad to do it. I am single and do not have kids of my own so I like to help in any way possible to educate/tutor all students at all levels. I make my tutoring lessons fun and interesting. If anyone is interested in any of my ideas, please let me know. I dedicate my summers to these students who are interested and need the extra help...I have a great reputation with the students in my county so the kids are more than excited to know that I will be helping them throughout the summer. I know that I am greatly appreciated by the single and working mothers. The parents and I decide the best place for me to help their child and together we set up a destination. I will travel to help any and all students. I really love my job and I am willing to help anyone in any way possible when it comes to education. I have plenty of time during the summer so I dedicate it to the students who are willing to work with me. I wish there were summer school positions available in our county, but unfortunately there are not. I provide all materials and prepare things in advance for the needs of the students.

Keep up the awesome work teachers!! :D

  34. I teach summer school to my at risk readers. Also, I mail each of my Title 1 Reading students a new book to read during the summer. I mail them 3 books over the summer to read and keep. I also include a self addressed stamped envelope for them to mail me back a paper that they drew and wrote about their favorite part of the book.

  39. I am tutoring Japanese students that have only been in Texas for 6 months. They are eager to learn, It is great to be working with kids again. I have been a trainer for 10 years where I help the teachers. It is great to see the spark in Yoshi's eyes as he is able to read a book on his level.
    FInding games and activities for him to do when he is not in school is very important.

  45. Great post about summer learning - our school set up a summer reading program for all of our students. We asked businesses to donate money and we bought each student books to read over the summer. Our title teachers worked feverishly to make sure the books coincided with their DRA levels so we knew the text would be appropriate for the kiddos.

    For the giveaway - I follow your blog here and on Facebook. I'll be linking up this morning at Mr. B's Beach Brains

    Have a great day!
